Homemade Tortillas

Having grown up around a lot of migrant workers in WI, I used to love watching my friends' grandmother make tortillas. We used to make them at home while growing up, too. I got a new Taste of Home magazine in the mail this weekend and this recipe looked so easy. We had to use quite a bit more flour than it called for. I don't know if that is because there was no 'resting' period for the tortillas. My other recipes call for them to rest for 30 minutes. They did taste great, though!

Homemade Tortillas
Taste of Home magazine June/July 2010

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
3 tablespoons olive oil

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 5-6 times. Divide dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. circle.
In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Keep warm. Yield: 8 tortillas.
