  • Combine the flour and salt and mix with your fingers.   Add the warm water, starting with 3/4 cup and mix well and continue to add water until a soft, round ball of dough is formed.
  • Roll the dough into golf ball sized balls.  Cover and set aside to rest for 30 mins or so.  
  • Heat a pan to medium heat.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll into a round disk about 1/8 inch thick and about 8 inches in diameter or to your preference.  OR.. use a tortilla press and press each ball between two pieces of parchment paper or wax paper. 
  • Fry one at a time on a hot griddle (no oil) until the surface starts to bubble. Turn only once, the first side should have tiny brown flecks. They hardly take any time at all so be careful not to cook them too long or they will get harder than they should be.
  • Keep warm in a tortilla keeper or wrapped in a cloth until served.


Keep the extra in the fridge for later. Mine kept great for a week! They will feel a little stiff when you take them out of the fridge, but just throw them in a hot pan for a second on both sides and they will become pliable again. You could microwave them too if you like.
