I grew up making tortillas. I’ve always been fascinated with making the basics at home like tortillas, graham crackers, mayonnaise etc. I just love feeling like I can make those things in a pinch instead of running to the store, not to mention they all taste so much better made at home!
They’re fantastic for any kind of sandwich roll-up, breakfast burrito etc!
2 cups flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
3/4 cup hot water
In a medium size bowl mix together dry ingredients. Add the oil using fingers or a fork, make sure to combine until the oil is absorbed and mixed into the dry ingredients.
Add hot water and stir until it is in a soft cohesive ball.
Cover in bowl and let rest for 20 minutes. This helps the gluten to relax so it’s easier to roll out.
Once it’s rested, divide into 5 pieces.
Set a large saucepan on high heat. Make sure to NOT add any oil, this needs to be a dry pan. If you have an electric griddle I would highly recommend that over a saucepan on the stove.
Flour your surface and roll each piece of dough out until it’s about 7 inches across. Place on hot pan for just a few seconds until bubbles form and then flip with tongs. Cooking each side for less than a minute. Repeat.
