How To Make Homemade Mexican Flour Tortillas?

  2. Increase the speed to a medium setting and continue to mix the dough until it’s smooth. Cover the dough and rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Mixing by Hand: Add the flour into a medium-size bowl and create a well in the center. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the fat.
  4. Mix the flour into the center until it absorbs all the water and the dough starts to come together.
  5. Add half of the fat and mix it into the dough, once it’s incorporated, add the remaining fat and continue to mix.
  6. Using your hand, continue to knead the dough by folding over the outer part of the dough onto the opposite side. Continue to knead and fold the dough rotating it for about 10 minutes until the tortilla dough is smooth and soft. Cover and rest for 15 minutes.
