If you have been following us for very long, you know what Mexican food lovers Sydney and I are. If you don’t find us eating at a Mexican restaurant, chances are you will find us experimenting with new Mexican recipes in the kitchen. Tacos, enchiladas, burritos, fried ice cream (get the recipe here) and the ever important salsa (our salsa recipe) are just some of our favorite Mexican dishes! We just can’t get enough of Mexican food! 🙂 Now it is homemade flour tortilla recipe time!
Homemade Flour Tortilla Recipe
Today I am going to share a homemade flour tortilla recipe that Sydney and I really enjoy making. Once you make these flour tortillas, I guarantee you will never use tortillas out of a package again! They are that good! It seriously takes your Mexican meal to a whole new level. Obviously, for Sydney and me that is very important! 🙂
Here is a tortilla in all its glory! Is this not the most delicious thing you have ever seen? This homemade flour tortilla recipe turns a really good taco into an amazing taco!
So Worth It…
I know it would be much easier to just open a package of store bought tortillas, but let me just say that this little bit of extra work is so worth it! The great thing is that this little bit of extra work is not in vain. You can wrap the tortillas in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for two to three days. Even better, the tortillas can be frozen for two to three months in the freezer. Just separate the tortillas with sheets of waxed paper and store in a zip-top plastic or freezer bag. So good ahead, double the batch and make extras to have on hand in the freezer!
To warm the tortillas after being in the fridge or freezer, wrap tortillas in a slightly damp paper towel. This will give a little bit of extra moisture to them. Microwave for 15-30 seconds or until warm and soft.
We adapted this homemade flour tortilla recipe from Nourish and fete. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
