Home made tortillas
I adapted this recipe from a Sunset cookbook. I usually fool and fuss with recipes until I have adjusted them quite a bit. In this recipe, I added one ingredient not listed- olive oil, and took away some of the salt. This recipe is VERY GOOD with whole-wheat flour, and if you use whole wheat flour I found the olive oil helps out with the elasticity and flavor.
You will need:
Baking Powder (try Rumford's Aluminum-free)
Rolling pin (the heavier it is, the faster your work goes)
To three cups of flour, add 2 tsp. baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt (use more if you like). Mix these together, and then add 3/4 cup warm water and 1/4 cup olive oil.
