We had a discussion about these on the Facebook page a while back and in a post on the blog. Once you've had homemade tortillas you will never go back to the store boughten (yep that is a word up here so all the grammar police can relax ) ones. These are fairly simple to make and they have SO much flavor compared to the other ones!
What you need:
- 2 c. flour
- 1 c. warm milk
- 1 t. salt
- 1 T. oil
- 1 1/2 t. baking powder
Mix all the ingredients together. I usually make a double batch because I like to keep half in the fridge and half in the freezer for another time. The recipe posted will make 10 tortillas. After you mix the ingredients, knead the dough until it's very smooth. I love the texture of this dough. It's slightly sticky but not sticky enough to need more flour. After you knead it, let it rest for about 20 minutes. That's the key to getting it rolled out.
Separate the dough into 10 pieces. Roll out each piece very very thin, you may need a little bit of flour on the counter to do this but not too much.
Make sure the dough is thin!
Put the dough down on a preheated griddle. A large frypan will work but won't be as easy. You do not need to grease the griddle.
Flip the torilla over after a few seconds. I just do this with my fingers. It will have nice brown spots on it. They only have to cook for about a minute. Don't overcook or they will get hard.
These are amazing fresh off the griddle!
