Almost every Mexican grandmother has her way of making flour tortillas, and this easy recipe is from mine. I know she would be so happy that I am still making her tortillas and that she taught me how to feel the dough and know when it's time to stop kneading the dough. This skill is a gift passed through generations. This skill just can't be taught over youtube or explained in a recipe. But do not let that detour you from making your flour tortillas because you can do it, and it will be worth it.
To me, homemade flour tortillas with a spread of butter and a sprinkle of salt mean love. It was how my grandmother showed she loved you. Her gift, every time I would visit her home. And today, when I make flour tortillas, and the first one hits the comal, I can smell my childhood.
If you have ever wanted to try and make homemade flour tortillas, this recipe is a great place to start. There is no need to let the dough sit; this recipe comes together in under 25 minutes.
