Keyword: Tortilla
Servings: 12 people
  • 6 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour (I use hard white) or white flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2/3 cups olive oil
  1. Place all the ingredients into a medium size bowl and blend together. Begin kneading for about 5-6 minutes. Immediately form into balls. Cover with greased plastic wrap. Let dough rest 30 minutes. This recipe makes between 18-24 tortillas (depending on the ball size). You can roll them out by hand or use a tortilla press. Cook the tortillas on both sides until cooked as desired on a hot griddle or a tortilla cooker.
