Easy Homemade Tortillas for 30 minutes

Leftovers? No worries. Make a burrito by preparing your home-made tortillas and making use of the excess food from yesterday’s meal. Tortilla is a thin, flatbread made up of flour or corn meal which is typically served with savoury fillings or salad.

Here’s a simple tortilla recipe that you can make ahead of time and store it in a freezer. Just heat up the pan and begin toasting a tortilla dough or cutting it to bite sizes and bake a batch of tortilla chips for snacks. It’s a terrific snack to those who are health conscious and fitness addicts. Stuff your tortilla with an ample amount of salad and your dressing of choice. And Walla! You got a refreshing and healthy meal in no time.
