How about Tortilla Dough?

If you’re an aspiring chef or just someone who enjoys cooking, you may be intrigued by the recipes you’ve just read, especially the tantalizing tortilla canapés.

But before you get started, you’ll need to ensure that you have one essential ingredient – a tortilla.

Fortunately, there are two ways to get your hands on this essential ingredient.

Firstly, you can buy pre-made tortillas from your local store. These are often convenient and time-saving, as they require minimal preparation.

However, if you’re looking for a more hands-on experience, making your own tortillas from scratch can be a fun and rewarding process.

To make your own tortillas, you only need a few basic ingredients, including flour, salt, water, and oil. With the right recipe and a bit of practice, you can create your own delicious tortillas that will elevate your culinary creations to new heights.

So, whether you choose to go the store-bought route or make your tortillas from scratch, the key is to have fun and enjoy the cooking process. With a bit of creativity and a willingness to experiment, the possibilities are endless!


  • 3 ⅓ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • ½ cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

If you want to make the tortillas a little healthier, you can replace half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 ¼ cups of flour with salt, water and olive oil. Mix until you obtain a thin, smooth dough.
  2. Use a wooden spoon or a stand mixer to work the dough for at least 10 minutes, until it is smooth, elastic and stretches nicely.
  3. Add the remaining 1 ⅛ cups of flour and continue mixing. You can place the dough on a floured surface and knead it by hand.
  4. The final dough should be smooth and flexible. You may have some flour left over.
  5. Divide the dough into 12-16 parts into thin patties.
  6. Heat a pan and briefly fry the tortillas on both sides until they turn light golden.
  7. Do not fry for too long, as the tortillas may become too hard and not suitable for fillings.

Now that you know how to make tortilla dough and tortilla canapés, we trust that you will enjoy cooking them. Bon appétit!
