Instructions for Homemade Tortilla Recipe:

Mix flour, salt, cold water, and oil in a bowl to form a dough.

Divide the dough into 24 balls for bite-sized tortillas or fewer balls for larger ones. Refrigerate the dough balls for 10 minutes to make them easier to roll out.

Roll each ball out thin on a lightly floured surface.

Fry each tortilla in a hot pan for about 1 minute on each side, or until lightly golden and cooked through.

Enjoy your freshly made tortillas with your favorite fillings, from savory meats and cheeses to sweet treats. Homemade tortillas bring a touch of authenticity and love to every bite!
