Home-Made Tortillas

These are so much better than packaged. They are extra work, but if I have the time, it is worth it. They are soft and thick, and the perfect warm wrap for your taco filling. Delicioso.

3c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. water
1/3 c. oil

Mix flour, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle of flour and add water and oil. With clean hands, mix and knead until well blended. Form dough into apricot-sized balls, cover with plastic wrap in bowl, and let sit for 10 minutes. Heat fry pan or griddle to MED HI.
Roll each ball of dough out on clean counter sprinkled with flour. Roll in a very thin circle and place immediately on hot, ungreased pan. Cook about 30-40 seconds on each side. Makes about 10-14 tortillas.
