  • Combine flour and salt then mix in water and olive oil. Once it’s combined, plop it on the counter and knead until it’s smooth.
  • Let the ball of dough rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 8 equal parts and then roll into something resembling a circle.
  • Spray skillet or griddle with non-stick spray or this better alternative and cook tortilla for about 1 minute on each side until brown.


While the dough is resting is a good time to prep the rest of dinner.
Hang soft tortillas over the grate on the oven and cook at 375°F for 7-10 minutes to create hard taco shells.
