Handmade Flour Tortillas
This recipe comes from a Mexican restaurant in Old Down San Diego. They are famous for these handmade flour tortillas!
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 3 oz softened butter
- 1 cup warm water
Preheat a griddle, grill or pan. In a mixing bowl stir flour and salt together.
Cut in the softened butter. There can be a few small pieces but you don't want any large chunks of butter.
Add about 2/3 of the water and mix the dough together. Continue adding the remaining water as necessary until the dough comes together in a soft ball.
Portion the dough into 12-18 equal sized pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and set aside.
Dust work surface lightly with flour and use a rolling pin to roll out each tortilla. Transfer to the hot griddle and cook for 15-20sec per side or until they puff up and turn golden brown.
