Homemade Tortilla Recipe

Homemade Tortillas

3 C. flour
1/3 C. vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. warm water

Mix dry ingredients well.  Add oil and stir until the mix resembles corn meal.  Add water slowly to form a non sticky dough.  Knead for 4 minutes.

 Cut the dough into 12 pieces and roll out into thin circles.  I have a new respect for women who can roll these out perfectly.  We had a tough time getting them thin enough much less round.

 Heat on a ungreased skillet at medium-high heat.  Cook each side for 1 - 3 minutes, look for bubbles to form and when you see them flip the tortilla.

We put peanut butter on these that turned into a melty goodness when they were warm.  Oh, they were so good and put the store bought ones to shame.
