Try making these homemade Tortillas. It is so simple and easy to prepare you will never have to buy them anymore. Use it for tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and various wraps.
Servings: 12 tortillas
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- ¾ cup warm water
- ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a big bowl and mix to form a dough. Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Knead the dough until soft and smooth, about 5 minutes.
Divide the dough into 12 equal parts and form each into a ball.Flatten each call with your palm and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes while covered with a clean kitchen towel.
After the dough has rested, heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, using a rolling pin roll a flattened dough on a floured surface into a circle, as thin as you can without it breaking. About 6-8 inches in diameter depending on what you plan to use them for.
Once the pan is hot, place a rolled dough and cook about 1 minute or until the bottom surface has a few pale brown spots and the top starts to form some bubbles. Flip to other side and cook for about 30 seconds to one minute. Remove from pan using tongs and stack in a covered container or sealable bag to keep them soft and pliable.Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.
If for later use, place tortillas in a resealable bag or airtight container and let them cool down then refrigerate afterward. Once ready to use, place them in between a slightly damp paper towel and microwave 15-25 seconds or until warm, then cover to hold heat while serving.
