Homemade Basic Flour Tortillas
1 cup warm water
Combine flour and salt. Add vegetable oil and mix lightly. Add the warm water and mix with a wooden spoon until you have a soft dough. Divide into equal pieces of 12-16 or so balls. Brush with a little vegetable oil and cover with a dish towel and let sit for 15 minutes.
Roll out each ball on a floured surface. Again, nothing too perfect but try to achieve a uniform thickness so they cook evenly. Preheat an ungreased griddle or cast iron pan. Add tortilla and cook until it begins to puff with a few browning spots on the bottom. Flip and press down to release the air pockets. Cook for about 1 minute. Remove and keep warm on a platter under foil until ready to fill. So good that I always eat one. You know, quality control and all...
