Homemade tortillas are better than store bought any day and so easy to make.
Ingredients
  • 2¼ c organic white unbleached flour
  • ¾ cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1⅛ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 5 Tbsp grass fed butter almost at room temp (I use Kerrygold brand)
  • ¾ to 1 cup warm milk
  • (You can also use a half and half ratio of whole wheat and white flour, which is what I did, but next time I'm using the ratio I listed in this recipe.)
Instructions
  1. Mix dry ingredients in large bowl
  2. Cut in butter until small balls form. Can work w hands.
  3. If you can squeeze a handful and it sticks together it's ready for the next step.
