These flavorful tortillas were used at the bakery for our breakfast burritos, which had scrambled eggs, cheese, salsa, fried potatoes, and sour cream. I also use them to make bean burritos, quesadillas, and as an accompaniment with a bowl of pinto beans.

servings:8 tortillas

time to make 10 min 10 min prep

1 cup white flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons canola oil
2/3 cup water

1. Combine flours, baking powder, and salt.
2. Stir in the oil and water all at once, using mixer or a fork, and toss quickly.
3. When dough can be gathered into a soft mass, turn onto floured surface and knead a few times.
4. Form 8 balls of dough, dredge in flour, and store in a plastic bag to prevent drying until ready to be used.
5. Flatten first ball of dough into a disk.
6. Roll out dough on floured surface until 7 inches or larger with even strokes that do not reach to the edge, turning over frequently.
7. Place tortilla in ungreased, frying pan that has been preheated to medium-high heat.
8. Cook 30-40 seconds on one side, turn over with spatula and cook 30-40 seconds on other side., First side should be pale and sprinkled with brown spots and the other side will be blotched.
9. Repeat process with other balls of dough.
10. Stack tortillas on a plate as they are cooked and cover them with a dish towel, which will keep them soft.

Okay so I made these the first time back in January. They were really good! I have made them many times since. I substitute the white for wheat flour though and the canola for olive oil though. They looked funny the way I rolled them out and I need practice but they were really yummy! I originally made 8 for the 5 kids and I and they said that was NOT enough! They wanted more! haha

Okay so this is my normal recipe now. I would still like to tweak it a bit. They taste GREAT! But sometimes they break when folding. *taps foot* So alot of times we fold them in half like a taco. When I make the kids quick stuff to eat like scrambled eggs and cheese burritos, or chili and cheese burritos, I flash freeze them and then put in a container or freezer bag. The kids eat them up quick! I need to do another pot of chili tomorrow.

Anyhow I take two, lay one flat and put ingredients in, then lay another one on top and seal the edges with a fork, flash freeze etc.

On Sunday I even got Kass in there to help! We made 48 and had chicken breast & cheese quesadillas for lunch. We had bought an $8.00 tortilla press. They are supposed to be a press for corn tortillas but I heard women saying they have one for their flour tort. on another forum. (SO you don't have to roll out) I notice without a press they come out very poofy and one thing is there was burnt flour all over it seems. But when I used the tortilla press, no bubbles and no burnt flour! You may need to add a bit extra flour before putting on tortilla press as they do tend to stick! Oh I forgot to add earlier when we were making the food to flash freeze, instead of warming them up individually in the skillet, we took them straight from the press, filled with ingredients and sealed with a fork, put them on cookie sheets and baked in the oven. We let them cool, then flash froze, etc.

For our quesedillas, we coated them with butter and cooked in pan. The kids will microwave the frozen ones later.

Anyhow I have pics w/out tortilla press and with. Enjoy!

BRB with pics

These first two pics were as the recipe calls for 8(small)tortillas.

This second pic is when I took the 8 recipe and made them twice as big.
These last two are with the tortilla press . As you can tell no huge poofy bubbles and they are shaped round like they are supposed to be! Very cute and they look like corn tortillas!

Have you ever made h.m. tortillas?
