Homemade Tortillas

So the recipe I had gotten from a friend for homemade whole wheat tortillas didn't work very well. I asked another lady how she did it and found she used more water and more baking powder. So I revised my recipe and made them tonight and they were delicious!! They are nice and fluffy, almost like a gordita and my husband loved them and even my daughter liked them so much she ate them plain LOL. I made chicken fajitas tonight and it was mmmmmm good!!

Here is the recipe:
  • 3 cups flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour but they do get a little flaky with this)
  • 3t baking powder
  • 1-2t salt (depends on how salty you want them)
  • 1 1/8 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
Mix dry ingredients together. In a seperate bowl mix the water and oil together. Add the water and oil to the dry ingredients and form a dough by kneading. You may need some extra flour nearby to prevent it from sticking to your hands. Form into 8 balls and let sit for about 10-15 minutes. Then heat a griddle or a pan on your stove to high with NO oil or spray at all, just a dry pan/griddle.

Then roll out a tortilla and place in pan. It should bubble up some. Turn it over on the other side when you see brown spots on the side that is cooking. Continue until all are done! Enjoy!
