Homemade Tortillas

My friend, Kallie, made homemade tortillas.  Here’s her recipe…

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup canola or olive oil (I really like coconut oil in this, actually)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup warm water


Mix dry ingredients together. Then add the oil and mix like you would a pie crust. Add the warm water and mix. Dough will be sticky add more flour while kneading until dough feels soft and light and loses its stickiness. Using a handful of dough at a time, roll out on a floured surface. Roll out several then heat dry pan (iron skillet is good) to medium heat before setting tortilla in pan. When it starts getting a lot of air bumps flip to the other side. It will have a few brown spots. Watch them carefully as they cook quickly.

This recipe makes 8 (10 inch) tortillas…or 10 8-inch tortillas
