About the Recipe
3 cups flour – your preference
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup oil (olive oil is the healthiest to use, but any vegetable oil is acceptable)
1 cup warm water
Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients and knead until you have a smooth ball.
Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes.
Divide up into 12 equal balls and roll out, thin (they will thicken up a bit when they cook.)
Do not use flour to roll them out because when you cook them the flour will burn. If they happen to be a little too moist, just lightly dust the ball before rolling out.
Fry the tortillas on medium high heat, with NO oil (that will make it crispy), on a cast iron skillet.
When they start to bubble up, turn over. When it starts to bubble up again, they are done.
Cover with a cloth to keep warm and serve.
These are very soft, very tasty tortillas!
