  • 400g self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 300ml warm water
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


    1. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a measuring jug mix the (luke) warm water and oil together and add to the flour.
    2. Stir together until all ingredients are well combined and form a dough.
    3. On a floured surface, knead the dough for 2-3 minutes. Divide the dough into 8 balls and roll each one out individualy. Aim for each tortilla to be a similar size to a dinner plate, the dough will shrink back abit when it is resting.
    4. In a large frying pan warm a teaspoon of oil and cook each tortilla for 1 minute each side on a medium heat. Each side should just start to brown on any raised areas.

I think someone's finger slipped on the keyboard - 200ml water makes a better dough!

Thanks for posting this recipe--I have been rather dismayed to find that all the commercially available tortillas are packed with artificial preservatives and palm oil! I think even I could have a go at these...

This was soo wet I had to add more flour to even get anywhere close to a dough and able to roll. ultimately it 's nearly half liquids (353ml inc the oil) to half flour - should've just added the water til it looked dough like rather than pour it all in like the recipe suggests!

Yes NB on this: for those who don't bake too often, remember that flours vary a great deal in their absorbency. You may need to follow your instincts rather than the recipe...but it's easy to sort: if too dry, add a bit more liquid; if too wet, a bit more flour.

Really easy and tasted great. Much better than shop bought and you can make the amount you need.

Are any remaining Tortilla's freezable? This recipe would make too many for just me.

Once the dough is cooked how long will the tortillas last for?
