Recently Terri shared about making tortillas. Making these has been on my mental list of things to do for a very long time. Since my friend, Brianna, talked about making them on FB several years ago. What can I say except it sometimes takes me a while to get my act together. *smile*
Having Terri post about the ease and the taste, along with a tasty looking picture, is all I needed to finally push these to the top of the list.
First you mix the dry ingredients together. 3 cups all purpose flour, 1 t baking powder, 1 t salt.
Then you add 1/3 cup oil and 1 cup water. Mix until ball forms (scraping sides often). Once ball is formed mixed an additional minute.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface (light is the key as I had too much flour). *smile* Then divide into 16 equal pieces. I used my handy dandy scale but you can certainly eyeball this.
Roll into balls and flatten slightly. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.
Roll out to make a 6 to 7 inch circle. This dough was easy to roll out. I worried as I have issues getting noodle dough to roll thin enough. Cook over medium heat about 30 seconds on each side. You may need to adjust your heat after the first one.
Fresh tortilla shells ready for taco Tuesday. Yum!
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
