{Video Tutorial} How to Make Flour Tortillas

I have a recipe for handmade flour tortillas but I’m asked on many occasions if I could make a video to show how I do it.  Sometimes seeing the procedure in action will help someone “get it” more than photos can.  Enjoy!

Do you make tortillas from scratch? And if so, how often?

    Oh my gosh. This is something I have been wanting to learn to do! I love to make bread and have made homemade baguette, bagels, rolls, pita (just this week), biscuits, but never tortillas!! I just made pita bread for the first time this week and this is oddly similar. Thank you so much for posting this! It doesn’t seem as scary as I originally thought.
    By the way, I am amazed at you folks who don’t measure things! I’m VERY impressed! =)

      That’s exactly why I wanted to post it!! People were emailing me over the years saying it seems so hard but it’s really not. And I made 30 tortillas with that batch. I think you can buy something like 12 for a $1 right?

    Oh my goodness you didn’t measure a darned thing. :)

    That looks really easy. We don’t use tortilla’s that often but I think next time I do a fajita night I may have to try making these. Can you do it in a frying pan on the stove? I don’t own an electric griddle thingamajig.

    Lori I made this recipe on Sunday with our Slow Cooker Pozole. The tortilla recipe was really easy to follow and they tasted wonderful. I am hoping to post about them soon. Thank you for the video. I cant roll them out for the life of me. Maybe now I can get better after see how you did it. Merry Christmas.

    I tried making tortillas once a long time ago and it was a disaster. It really does help to see it on video! You’ve encouraged me to try again. :)

    I made these tonight and they turned out perfect. It took me a bit to figure out how thin to roll them out but I figured it out. THANK YOU for posting this. It made it soooo much easier!!!! :D
