Why I Love This Recipe

My grandmother made them from scratch every single day. She didn't have a recipe so one day I had her put the handfuls and pinches of what she was putting in her bowl into measuring cups and spoons first, to her delight. She thought we were weak for having to measure. This recipe has served me and the other "weak ones" in our familia well over the years.


Ingredients You'll Need

3 c. flour
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP baking powder
add 1/3 cup oil
about 1 1/4 c lukewarm water


Directions

sift together


3 c. flour


1 tsp salt


1 TBSP baking powder


add 1/3 cup oil.


Mix with fingers until blended (she said this was key in good tortillas)


Add about 1 1/4 c lukewarm water, mixing until a soft dough forms.


Knead smooth on a floured board and shape into a ball.


Let it rest for about 10 to 15 minutes or until it loosens up.


Form into 12 balls and roll out into a thin circle.


Cook quickly on a hot ungreased griddle.
