I came up with this recipe when i wanted tacos for dinner but had no tortillas. These tortillas are awesome for tacos, burritos and simply as a bread for a dip. They can be frozen which makes it awesome for making a big batch. I used my kitchenaid but you can just a easily use your hands (just extra hard work and more time consuming)
3 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup warm water
Mix the flour, salt, pepper and baking powder in a kitchenaid bowl with the dough hook attached. Add the oil and water and mix on a low speed until the dough starts to come away from the sides of the bowl and forms a ball, turn the speed up to medium and knead for 3-5mins until dough is smooth. Shape the dough into a sausage and divide into 16 equal parts. Roll each piece into a ball and cover the dough pieces with a tea towel and allow them to rest for 15 minutes.
Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Working on one at a time, roll out each dough into a circle and try to get them very thin.
Place the dough circle into the frying pan and cook for 1 minute or until a few golden brown spots appear (you may get a few bubbles, this is good!). Flip the tortilla over and cook for another minute. Remove the tortilla from the pan and place in a sealed container. This will keep them soft. Repeat with the remaining dough circles. Serve warm with your favorite meats and salads.
