One thing I’ve always been scared to try to make is tortillas, but a friend of a friend shared her recipe over on her blog On Life and Beans — and I wanted to give them a try! I make them regularly now!!
It does take some time, but it’s nice to know there are no preservatives or trans fat in them! These will not turn out like store-bought tortillas, but they are delicious!!
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 cup hot water
4 T. olive oil
1) Mix together the dry ingredients.
2) Add the water and oil to the dry ingredients. Mix well. Dough should be soft and easy-to-work.
3) Separate the dough into many small balls (maybe 2 inches in diameter depending how big you want the tortillas to be). Roll each ball very thin and round (good luck!! 🙂 ).
4) Warm your skillet on medium. Toss the tortilla on and brown each side (I do about 10-30 seconds per side, so mine get a little thicker. Andrea says it should take just seconds if your pan is the right temperature)!!
5) Serve nice and warm!!
