Homemade tortillas used to seem waaaaaay out of my league until I saw this recipe on Tasty Kitchen. All you need is a few pantry items, half an hour, and voila! Soft, warm tortillas! I found that I could speed up the process by making two at a time using two different pans. Next time you are making something that calls for tortillas, give these babies a try!
Authentic Flour Tortillas
From Marilee on Tasty Kitchen
2 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup water
In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add oil and with your hand mix until oil is incorporated. Add water all at once and mix with hands until well blended. Pinch off about 8-10 balls and place in bowl.
Cover and let set at least 15 minutes then roll out thin on a floured surface.
Heat up pan, place tortilla, and cook until bubbly. Then turn and cook until lightly browned.
Note: You can make the balls early in the day and then cook right before eating.
