Homemade Tortillas

homemade everything is good by me.
it trumps anything store-bought each & everytime.
you can taste homemade.
there's care, love, and usually arm strength involved which only adds to the flavour department.
 or so i'm reminded by my housemates.
see you later you store-bought tortillas, you've been respectively replaced.  

Homemade Tortillas

3 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup hot water

In large bowl mix dry ingredients until incorporated.  Add in oil and mix with hands until it resembles fine crumbs.  Add in water and mix until ball is formed.  Wrap in plastic and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes.
Divide dough into 12 balls and roll out one at a time onto a floured surface till 8-inches in diameter.  Brush off excess flour.  Cook on a hot, ungreased griddle over medium-high heat, turning when dough begins to brown and blister.  
Wrap cooked tortillas in a tea towel to keep warm & serve.

Yields: 12
