Take your taco night to the next level by making these vegetarian street tacos with homemade flour tortillas. The dough for the tortillas needs to sit for 30 minutes so we suggest getting that started before making the veggie taco mix. Once everything is done, put it all together with your favorite taco garnishes and enjoy.

Homemade flour tortillas

Makes 12 tortillas

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 3/4 cup water

Directions:

  1. Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  2. Add shortening to the bowl and combine with a fork (or your fingers) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in water until the dough forms.
  4. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and knead several times until a smooth dough forms.
  5. Leave the dough on the surface, cover with a towel and let sit for 30 minutes.
  6. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and roll each portion out into a 6-inch circle.
  7. Cook the tortillas 1 at a time in a dry skillet over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes on each side, or until the tortillas are light brown and start to puff.
