Home Made Tortillas
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tablespoon Olive oil (or oil of choice)
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7 to 8 inch circle. ( 7 inches works best for my tortilla bowl pans)
In a large nonstick skillet covered with cooking spray, cook tortillas over med to low heat for about a minute on each side. Keep warm. Makes 4 tortillas.
