A flour tortilla is a type of soft, thin tortilla made with flour and water. It is a staple of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine.
The first recorded recipe for a flour tortilla was in a Mexican cookbook from 1832. The book, El cocinero mexicano, contained a recipe for a tortilla de harina, or flour tortilla. The recipe called for flour, water, salt, and lard.
Since then, flour tortillas have become a staple of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. They are often used to make burritos, enchiladas, and tacos.
