Homemade Flour Tortilla

Homemade flour tortillas are quite a project to undertake as it is a little time consuming, but it is worth every second. They are lighter than their store-bought equivalent which often have a cardboard-like texture. You can easily make a large batch of tortillas and freeze them in portions to enjoy whenever, just remember to defrost them ahead of time. This way you can enjoy veggie wraps or burritos anytime.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Ingredients (16 wraps):
• 3 cups All-purpose flour
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1 cup warm water
• 1/3 cup olive oil

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and make a well.
2. Pour warm water and olive oil into the well until it forms a homogenous dough. Add more warm water should the dough be too hard and keep kneading it for at least ten minutes.
3. Distribute the dough into 16 equal pieces and roll them into balls. Put them back into the bowl and cover them with a wet tea towel. Let them rest for 30 minutes.
4. Put a large pan on medium low hear and let it come to temperature.
5. Roll out a ball of dough on a floured surface as thin as possible, the work surface should be visible through the dough. You can fix the shape with your hands should they not be perfectly circular.
6. Put the tortilla into the dry pan and bake it for 30-40 seconds before flipping it around, the outside should be visibly dry, and repeat the baking step.
7. Repeat the last two steps with all the dough balls.
8. Reheat the flour tortilla for twenty seconds in the microwave, oven or in a pan before filling it.
