Homemade Tortillas

Even though it sounds like a daunting task, making homemade tortillas isn't that hard or time consuming and the results are well worth the effort. You know exactly what is going into what you're eating, and they are WAY cheaper than buying them in the store.

You need:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 c. warm water

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add oil and stir. Add water 1 tbsp. at a time until dough can be gathered into a ball. Kneed 15-20 times. Let dough rest 15 min. Divide into 12 equal balls. Roll each ball out from center to make a circle. Cook on ungreased skillet on medium-high heat about 30 seconds on each side or until puffy.
