Homemade Tortillas



I found this recipe online and it has become a family favorite! Store bought ones just don't taste so good any more, I think the homemade ones are more filling too. They are really easy to make and turn out soft and yummy!

Flour Tortillas


2 c. flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. oil
3/4 c. warm water or milk

Stir together first 3 ingredients, Mix in liquids. Dough will be sticky. Knead 2 minutes. Let rest 10-20 minutes. Divide into about 8 balls and let rest for another 10-20 minutes. Roll or press out as flat as you possibly can. Fry on a dry skillet until slightly brown. You can keep them warm and soft if you cover them with a damp towel. Enjoy!

Hey! We tried them last nite! My problem was not rolling them thin enough, but still good, and even was able to wrap them around chicken for enchiladas!
Definitely more flavorful than the "cardboard" purchased ones(-:
