 Cinco de Mayo is coming up and one of the main ingredients that many people enjoy using for such an occasion are flour tortillas.  A fun and easy way to impress your guests and family members alike is to make your own tortillas, the result is a fresh and flavorful take on an old classic.  Some variations on the tortillas could be a sprinkle of onion or garlic powder into the dough before you cook them.  You can use these tortillas the same way you would use the store bought kind in any recipe that you are planning on making.  This recipe makes about 4 tortillas, so double the recipe if you need or want more. 

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt.  Stir in water and oil. 
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead about 5-6 times.  Divide your down into 4 portions and roll each into a large circle.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook the tortillas over medium heat for about 1 minute on each side.
