Homemade Tortillas -- Everyday Homemaking

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup warm water

¼ cup olive oil

2-3 cups fresh flour (we mill our own for maximum nutrition/freshness – I usually use soft wheat or hard white, with a bit of barley)

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp baking powder

Add spice/garlic if desired – I use McCormick’s (Original, not Savory) All-Purpose Seasoning (This may now be called Perfect Pinch)

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Put liquids in a bowl. Add dry ingredients to make soft dough (NOT stiff). Let rest (covered) 10 minutes. Shape into balls (probably about 12) about the size of a plum. (May roll in garlic/herb oil).

Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat tortilla maker after wiping with a smidgen of oil.

(If you don’t have a tortilla maker, you can roll each out with a rolling pin and cook in a preheated skillet.)

Cook each about 30 seconds. I press till it steams, then open and let finish. Flip for good measure and let cook about 5 seconds. Put in a dishtowel while cooking the rest. Recipe may be doubled and frozen.

[For sweet tortillas: Add 2 Tbsp brown sugar or Sucanat and 2 tsp cinnamon. Serve with fruit/yogurt/pudding.]
