How To: Make Homemade Tortillas

Lately, I have become obsessed with making homemade tortillas. Or really, I've become obsessed with eating homemade tortillas. There is such a difference between homemade tortillas and the store-bought ones. Besides, have you ever looked at the ingredients on a package of store-bought tortillas? They are full of chemicals. Yuck!

Over the past few months, I've experimented with a few recipes. These are by far my favorite. They're the perfect combination of crispiness and doughiness. And they're vegan (they use coconut oil instead of milk or any sort of lard). We use them to make black bean quesadillas or breakfast burritos. I also love them slathered in butter or honey.

P.S. I was really intimidated the first time I set out to make tortillas, but they're actually really easy and quick. And there are only 5 ingredients. So don't be afraid!


  1. Lately I have been wanting to make homemade tortillas so badly! You totally just gave me the inspiration--and the recipe. Maybe I'll try them out tonight.

  2. Let me know how it goes! I think they're really fun to make. My boyfriend and I have this little system where I flatten them out and then he fries them. Once you get into the rhythm it goes really fast. It is a fun way to connect after the work day.
