How to Keep Tortillas Soft

If your tortillas are not soft there can be several reasons:

  1. You did not use all purpose flour.
  2. You did not use a cast iron pan.
  3. Your pan was not hot enough.
  4. You did not roll them thin enough.
  5. They are not stored properly.

I store mine in a zip top plastic bag (put them in while they are still warm) and then close it up and remove all the air. Mine are always soft and every time I remove one, I close the bag back up, air removed each time. I keep them refrigerated this way for as long as 10 days.

    Are you serious? You mean I’ve been buying machine made tortillas with ingredients I couldn’t pronounce (let alone define) when I could have had these? And these are better, with ingredients and tools I already have on hand? I just can’t believe it.

    One tip that may work for folks: When I added the oil I used a pastry cutter (could use 2 forks) to really work that oil into the dry ingredients, like when making biscuits. Hope it helps! Thanks Ms Jen for another win!!!

      If you have a table top mixer, that works the best. Just use the dough hook. So much easier than mixing by hand, and they always turn out perfectly.
