Easy Tortilla Recipe - in a food processor

Yield: 8 tortillas
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 24 minutes
Total Time: 44 minutes

Make flour tortillas easily in a food processor.  Add the dry ingredients, drizzle in the wet ingredients.  It's that easy.  Make tortillas for Honduran Baleadas, Mexican tacos or flatbread.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • oil

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, add 2 cups of flour and the other dry ingredients.  Pulse a few times to mix the ingredients well.
  2. In a measuring cup, add the water, then the oil.
  3. While the processor is running, slowly add the wet ingredients.  Process for a minute then slowly add the flour one heaping Tbs at a time until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the food processor.  Remove the dough and turn out onto a floured work surface.  Knead the dough for 5 minutes, form into a ball and rub a thin layer of oil all over it.  Wrap in plastic or cover with a damp dish cloth, let rest for 30-60 minutes.
  4. Roll the dough into a rope and cut eight even sections.  Roll each piece into a ball with oiled hands.
  5. If you have a tortilla press and you are making thin tortillas then between two pieces of heavy plastic (I use a gallon sized freezer bag cut into two squares) place your oiled ball of dough and press.  Set aside.  Repeat until all are pressed.  
  6. If you are rolling out your dough into a thicker tortilla, place the oiled dough on a floured surface and roll out until the size is about 8 inches.  Stack with a little flour in between each layer.
  7. Preheat a griddle over medium heat and place a tortilla to cook until bubbly, then flip.  It takes about 2 minutes to cook each tortilla.
  8. Store in a plastic bag overnight or in the fridge for up to 3 days.  Reheat in the microwave or on a griddle.

I think for next time I need to try and make the tortillas a little thinner. Otherwise the tortillas turned out great! And they taste amazing with your refried bean recipe :)

Wow! You are adventurous:). I think tortillas are intimidating but they aren't that hard. If the dough is too springy, just wait another five minutes for the gluten to relax. I love the taste of fresh tortillas, I have trouble getting them thin too. If I made them more often, I'm sure I would be a pro!

It's been a long time since I have made tortillas. This article reminds how much I love fresh tortillas. Going to save this for this weekend. My favorite way to eat them is with butter when they are hot off the pan. Can't wait!
