Home made tortillas are a must for anyone who loves tacos and lives on a budget. Especially if your residence is in a country where these are expensive. Thanks to a dear friend for this great and easy recipe!

Ingredients: Makes 6 ( I always double this)
2 cups flour 
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 t. oil
3/4 c. warm water

1. Mix oil and water, and flour and dry ingredients separately.

 2 Mix oil mixture into flour mixture a little at a time. It will be sticky.

3. Knead on a lightly floured surface 4-5 min, until smooth and no longer sticky. Cover and lest rest 20 minutes.
4. Divide into balls.

5. Roll as thin as possible, using some flour to keep from sticking.

6. Cook on a hot, dry skillet until bubbly and slightly puffy on both sides.

7. Wrap in a towel to keep from drying out.
