30-Before-30: Tortillas!

Easier than I was expecting, I made tasty homemade tortillas for one of my 30 things. I wanted to try a recipe without shortening and they ended up turning out great. Matt liked them with black bean salsa and melted cheese, I thought honey+butter+tortillas were the perfect match.
"Healthy" Homemade Flour Tortillas
Straight from Tasty Kitchen.


3 cups organic, unbleached flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup hot water

Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder with a whisk. Add the canola oil and mix with your fingers until all the oil is incorporated and the mixture looks like fine crumbs. Add 1 cup of hot water and mix until a ball is formed. Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for about 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 12 balls and roll out one at a time on a floured surface. Brush off excess flour. Cook on a hot, ungreased griddle over medium-high heat. Turn the tortilla when brown blisters form on the first side.

Serve warm and enjoy!
