Homemade Flour Tortillas

makes 8 tortillas


2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon San Fran Sea Salt

3/4 cup water

3 tablespoons Gil's California Extra Virgin Olive Oil (plus extra for cooking the tortillas)


Place flour and salt in a large bowl, and stir to combine. Add water and oil to the bowl and stir to combine, creating a 'shaggy' dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-10 minutes or until the dough is smooth. Portion the dough into 8 even pieces. Working with one piece at a time, roll the dough into thin flat circles. Place a lightly greased piece of parchment (or wax paper) on top of the tortilla, and repeat for the remaining dough, creating a little secure, non-stick stack.

Heat about 1 1/2-2 teaspoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add a tortilla (working with just one tortilla at a time), and cook for about 1 per side or until the tortilla is cooked through. Remove the tortilla from the skillet and repeat this process for the remainder. Serve tortillas warm or cool and freeze to serve later.
