Tried this recipe for the first time yesterday and it worked well although I don't think I rolled the dough thin enough. I made and cooked the tortillas, and then brushed half of them with a mixture of olive oil and garlic salt and cut them into triangles for tortilla chips, which proved to be delicious. The tortillas were an excellent accompaniment to homemade Chilli con Carne. Will definitely be using this recipe again.

I know and love home made tortillas very well. I gave this 3 stars because you can't get the real deal with olive oil. I swapped it out for melted lard and then they definitely are rated 5 stars. Oh and triple the batch, they go quick.

Too sticky. Use Chef John's white tortilla's video for great tortillas.

This recipe is a good staple recipe! My first time and they came out perfectly. Follow the note that says add more water or flour as needed, but for the most part the recipe is exact. Thank you!

Wow! I have eaten and made authentic flour tortillas, but these were our favorites! Thick or thin depends on how thin you roll it out, but they are amazing!!

I was a bit nervous at first about how this recipe would turn out as some of the comments mentioned it being too runny. So, I only put in 2 T oil and added the water slowly at first. Came out beautifully! This was my first try at making tortilla wraps and I was so relieved when they came out perfectly. Cooking them was also a breeze.

I created an account just to post that the ratios on this recipe are wsy wrong. I've made homemade tortillas before and these were way too watery. Don't use!

My family and I absolutely love the tacos made with this recipe. I can’t wait to get a tortilla press so I can stop rolling them with my rolling pin. I’ve tried it with olive oil and coconut oil, and both came out great. No issues with stickiness, just perfect.I love that I can now make my own tortillas and know exactly what’s in them.I even tried adding baking powder as many recipes suggest, but the fluffy tortillas just aren’t for us. If you like your tortillas thicker, then add a little baking powder (I think I added 1/2 teaspoon).

Just okay. In a pinch, I will make these, but will continue to buy them from the store.

Too much liquid, just a sticky mess. Mix the water in a bit at a time, won’t need as much as it s?ys
