Homemade Tortillas

Speaking of tortillas...the whole thing got me wondering why on earth I haven't tried to make my own...So I did - and they were great.  Better fresh than the next day.  These are fun to try, but they are a lot of work.  My recommendation if you don't have time/energy to do this is to buy the ones from Tortillaland! :)

3.5 c. flour
5 tsp. baking powder
1.5 tsp. salt
1/3 c. canola oil
1 c. HOT water

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl until well combined.  In separate bowl, place 2 c. of flour mixture.  Add oil and mix well with hands until well combined.  Slowly add water and  enough flour until you reach achieve a ball of dough with no sticky parts remaining (this left me about 1/2 - 1 c. of flour to use for rolling out).  Place ball of dough on heavily floured surface.  Pinch ball into 1/3 c. portions and roll each ball out with rolling pin until it is EXTREMELY thin (1/16").  Place on hot griddle (or medium high frying pan - ungreased) and cook on each side until little bubbles appear (about 15 seconds on each side).  We served these with homemade fajitas.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
