I found this in my TOH magazine. This is different from all of the other 5 recipes posted here as it does not use shortening or baking powder. It was fun making these on our own last summer and I look forward to doing it again now that I remember where the recipe was found. Hope it works out for you too.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Stir in the water and oil.
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead 5-6 times.
  3. Divide dough into 8 equal portions. On the floured surface roll each portion into a 7-inch disk.
  4. In a large non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Keep warm while cooking the others.
