Homemade Soft Tortillas

Posted on Updated on

This post is especially for my beautiful friend Emily. She’s a personal hero of mine.

Sometimes, meal planning in our house is like the Food Network show Chopped. Ok, I have ground beef, and, um, cheese, jelly beans and maybe some lettuce and I have half an hour. What can I make? Tacos. But, oh, I don’t have shells or taco seasoning. No problem! Here is a great (and easy) recipe for taco shells. Trust me, they are easy.

The dough comes together nicely and is a little bit sticky.

I cut it into pieces before I roll them into balls.


Cat rolled them out with my non-stick rolling pin. I know there is a great tortilla press that I can purchase.  Maybe I’ll put that on my Christmas list. 😉


I warmed up my cast iron skillet and popped the expertly rolled tortillas on for a few seconds.

Then, I place them in a damp towel.


My family likes them way better than the store bought variety. 🙂

Oh, and if you’d like to make your own taco seasoning, I use the recipe here.

PS. I ate the jelly beans while making the tortillas. You know, ’cause that’s great for me…
