Chipotle Flour Tortillas

Our local grocery chain here in TX makes a Southwest Tortilla.  I saw this recipe and thought it looked just like those!  They were easy to make(though I needed more flour) and tasted great.  Don gave them two thumbs up. 
Chipotle Flour Tortillas

2/3 c. all purpose flour (8 oz.)*Beth used about 1 1/3 cup
1/4 t. sea salt
1/4 t. baking powder
3 1/2 T. canola oil
1/2 c. hot water (1 min. High in microwave)
1 1/2 t. chipotle in adobe sauce, blended smooth

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder. In another bowl, mix together hot water, oil and chipotle blend.
Pour water mixture over flour mixture. Knead by hand until a smooth ball is formed; do not knead longer than 3 minutes. Cover ball with plastic wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.

Cut dough into 1.5 oz or into 9 equal portions. Beth only made 8 tortillas. Shape into individual balls. Cover with plastic wrap.

Roll each ball into a 7-8” circle and cook in a non-stick skillet over med-hi heat till bubbles form; flip over and cook till light brown. Flip over one more time; put in tortilla warmer or covered in a clean kitchen towel.
