Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas

I have been making these homemade tortillas for years now....and I will never go back to store bought again. They are so soft, chewy and best of all, hot and fresh. If I am ever out of groceries at the house, I know that I can always make these because I usually have the ingredients on hand. I love to put in re-fried beans (see recipe below) with grated cheese. Of all the food I make, this is my kid's ALL TIME FAVORITE meal.- Christine

1 cup flour
4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups very hot water
all purpose flour for rolling.

In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup of white flour, wheat flour, and salt. Stir in the oil and mix until it is the texture of oatmeal. Make a well in the center and pour in the hot water. Mix with fork until all is incorporated. Knead until smooth. Make balls the size of golf balls. With a rolling pin, flatten to your liking. Cook each side on a hotly greased pan until golden brown.

Re-fried Beans

1 can non fat re-fried beans
3 TBS butter
1/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp. ground cumin

Melt the butter in a pan. Stir in the milk and cumin. Add the beans. Stir.


  1. I will try these. I need a tortilla recipe, but have never attempted making my own. Thanks for posting this B.J. I enjoy reading all the recipes.

  2. I just tried making these....and I'm not sure if I made them right or not...when exactly do I put in the wheat flour? In the beginning do I put in all 4 cups? Or one cup of white flour and one cup of wheat flour?
