Homemade Tortillas!

This is a kind of a repost.
Okay, so I have had several people ask for my
Tortilla Recipe

(without the enchiladas recipe) and so here it is.
SO, easy to make and
SO yummy to eat!!

Flour Tortillas
4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp baking powder (heaping..don't level it off)
1/2 cup oil
1-1/3 cup HOT water

Mix dry ingredients together and the add in hot water and oil. Mix until it forms a ball of dough. Cover with a damp cloth and let rest 15 minutes

Uncover and form into balls (10 or 12) just larger than a golf ball. Cover with damp cloth and allow to rise 30 minutes to 1 hour. (I let mine go the full hour)

Flatten and roll out and cook on HOT griddle. Turn them when bubbles appear. After pulling them off the griddle, stack them on a plate and cover with a towel and then once they're all cooked, store in a Ziploc bag to keep them moist and pliable.

These are absolutely amazing

and make great burritos, soft tacos, Quesadillas, OR, are great to put in a bowl and then pile on fixins' for a Taco Salad.
