It’s no secret that flour tortillas are champions of versatility! You can top them with anything, fill them with anything, and they work great for snacks or for meals. What’s less well known, however, is that they’re also incredibly easy to make! Really! And nothing beats a fresh, warm tortilla.

When making tortillas at home, use the opportunity to be creative! By using different spices or flours, you can inject a little flair into your recipe, and make your tortillas truly unique! In this recipe, we use saffron and butterfly pea flower to give our tortillas unique and distinctive colors. You can substitute a portion of the all-purpose flour for other flours, too, for more flavor and texture variety.

Recipes such as this one traditionally use lard, but we’ve found that vegetable oil makes a perfectly suitable substitution. It’s easy to double or triple this recipe, and they’ll keep in your refrigerator in an airtight container for a couple of weeks. Homemade tortillas are best when fresh, though, and we don’t think you’ll have any problem finding ways to use them!
