My family LOVES tortillas. Because one of our New Year’s resolutions is to cut back on pre-made/pre-packaged foods, I went on a hunt to create a fool-proof flour tortilla recipe. This recipe is perfect for burritos, wraps, taco nights, and so much more.

With this step-by-step recipe, you will get 12- 10” tortillas.


  • 4 cups AP flour or whole wheat
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 + 1/3 cup warm water


Step 1

Slice butter into cubes and place butter into 1 cup of warm water. Set aside to allow water to melt some of the butter.

Step 2

In a large bowl, add flour & salt. Lightly mix then pour your butter water into your flour mixture. Mix until water is mostly incorporated. Slowly add additional 1/3 cup of warm water to mixture as you knead until all incorporated and smooth (about 10 minutes by hand) .

Step 3

Cover dough with tea towel & let rest for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Split dough into 12 equal potions, roll into balls and cover.

Step 5

Roll each dough ball out to a thin 10” circle in diameter.

Step 6

Get a cast iron or non-stick 10.5”+ pan hot.

Step 7

Place one tortilla on it when the side has bubbled up, flip, and bake until the other side has browned and bubbled. Place in a towel and cover to keep warm, and repeat until finished.

Serve hot and enjoy! You can generally store these for a few days in an airtight ziplock at room temperature.
