Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE TACOS! There is no way I’m alone on that, right? Are you craving tacos yet? What makes the perfect taco in my opinion? Why, that’s easy – the tortillas!

I’m currently working on bringing you an AWESOME post on easy one pot and one pan meals and last night was Chicken Tacos in the crock pot. Store bought tortillas would obviously make it truly one pot BUT I also thought it was a good time to introduce my homemade tortillas recipe!

Flour tortillas that you find at the store are so thick and contain more than the 4 ingredients it takes to make mine!

Then add 3 tablespoons of oil ( I used olive oil for this batch, but usually use avocado oil) or melted butter. Start to mix (with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula) and slowly add 3/4 cup of room temperature water.

Flatten the balls with the palm of your hand and roll them out. You want them to be super thin. Notice in the picture you can almost see the marble countertop through the rolled out tortillas? That is what you want to go for!

Heat a skillet to medium heat. Make sure the skillet is HOT before you put the tortillas on it. I use my favorite grill pan (Le Creuset from Williams- Sonoma) because it adds pretty lines as they cook and well, pretty food just tastes better, right?

 Cook on one side until the tortillas are no longer see-through.

Flip over and cook on the opposite side just until it looks done on that side. Repeat with all tortillas.
