Soft Flour Tortillas

Soft Flour Tortillas

You can make soft flour tortillas at home easily.

Ingredients: 6-8 sheets

Bread (strong) flour
200 g
a pinch
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Lukewarm water
7 tablespoons


1. Place the bread flour, salt, and olive oil in a bowl. Add the lukewarm water and mix them with a rubber spatula until the mixture resembles panko.
2. Knead the dough on a working surface. If the dough is tough, add a small amount of lukewarm water. Once the dough becomes evenly smooth, wrap it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
3. Divide dough into 6-8 equal sections. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough into circles as thinly as possible. (Refer to Helpful Hints). Dusting with flour is not necessary. In a skillet over medium heat, without any oil, lightly cook both sides of the tortilla.
4. You can make them a day ahead! Simply warm them up on a skillet or microwave.
5. Even after it is completely cooled, it stays very soft. You can roll it up just like in the picture.
6. The pan-fried tortilla can be frozen for later use. It can be used as a pizza dough as well.
7. Warm filling; chilli con carne. (Recipe ID: 211357), chicken nanban (chicken marinated in sweet and sour sauce), karaage Japanese fried chicken, yakiniku, or a sausage.
8. Cold filling; bang bang chicken (Recipe ID: 218312), ham, kimchi, avocado, or lettuce.
