Recipe : Homemade Flour Tortillas
These are oh, so simple to make!! I don't know why I felt intimidated by tortillas for so long... no more! And what's more, they are made completely from ingredients from the pantry, so they are super-cheap to make. Take that, Dempster's! LOL
Homemade Flour Tortillas
1 1/2 cups flour (white or whole wheat)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
Combine dry ingredients. Make a well and add oil and water. Mix with a fork to make a soft dough. Knead by hand for a few minutes until smooth.
Break into about 8 small balls and dust balls with flour. Roll out into a thin circle, about 1/8 inch thick.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with a bit of oil. Cook each tortilla for 15-30 seconds on each side.
Use to make wraps, quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, etc. Or, if you are Cara, spread with Nutella, roll up and enjoy. :
