Tortillas and Tortilla Chips

Why not add the finishing touch to these homemade dips with homemade tortillas and tortilla chips? This is a great idea for an impressive homemade starter that’s perfect all year round!

  • Prep: 20 minutes
  • Cook: 40 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour
  • Recipe serves: 16


  • 2 cups of flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup of water
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil


  1. Put flour in a large bowl and add the salt – combine these together then stir in the water and oil.
  2. Sprinkle your surface with flour
  3. Take the mixed dough and knead the mixture 10-12 times on your floured surface
  4. You can add a little flour or water – whatever it takes to achieve a smooth dough
