Homemade tortillas may take more time than buying a bag at the store, but they are so much worth the time. I like to substitute 1/2 whole wheat flour. A tortilla press can be helpful, but not necessary.

- 1Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a a medium sized bowl. In a small bowl, combine warm water and oil.

- 3Lightly flour a cutting board and knead dough about 4-5 minutes or until smooth.
- 4Place dough in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth for 20 minutes.

- 6Meanwhile, pre-heat a comal or skillet to medium/high.
- 7Using a floured rolling pin, roll each ball into tortillas of about a 6 inch diameter and 1/8 thick. (Alternative: Line a tortilla press with wax paper and press to desired thickness).
- 8Place a tortilla on comal/skillet for 30 seconds or until the dough begins to bubble and turn brown. Flip and cook other side.
- 9Keep cooked tortillas covered in a tortilla warmer, or place on a cookie sheet in a warm oven, while finishing all the tortillas.).
