Home Made Wheat Tortillas

24 Feb

From Rak’s Kitchen

1 cup all purpose flour, or 1/2 cup all purpose and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour for whole wheat tortillas.
3 Tbsp oil 
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
warm water, as needed

In a bowl mix together the salt, baking powder and flour.

Mix in the olive oil, really well.

Add the warm water until you reach the right consistency – not too sticky but well incorporated.

Let the dough sit for 10-15 minutes.

Divide into 6 balls for small tortillas, 4 balls for large tortillas.

Flatten the balls on a floured surface so that they are thin circles.

In a preheated, oil-less skillet,  cook each tortilla for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until each side bubbles.

**When making the whole wheat tortillas, make sure not to overcook them as they will become more hard and less pliable** 

I love these filled with melted cheese or crushed garbanzo beans, and topped with black bean sauce with tons of toppings!
