all purpose flour
Mixing the Dough
In a large mixing bowl stir together flour and salt.
Add water and oil to flour and stir until well combined.
Knead the Dough
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Knead dough until soft and smooth, approximately 2-3 mins.
Resting the Dough
Form the dough into even ball.
Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest for 10-15 mins.
Forming the Tortillas
Using a large knife or bench scraper, evenly cut dough ball in half. Roll each half into a ball shape again.
Cut each ball into 8 pieces (16 total).
Lightly flour hands. Working with one dough ball at a time, form into disks.
Roll out disk using a lightly flour rolling pin.
The shape of the tortilla will look rustic (not an even circle) and will be approximatley 8 inches in diameter.
Cooking the Tortillas
Heat a cast iron or heavy bottomed stainless steel pan over med/high heat. As each tortilla is rolled out immediately add directly onto pan (no need for any oils for cooking sprays).
Cook on the first side until tortilla begins to bubble, about 1- 1/2 mins.
Turn over and cook other side of tortilla for about the same amount of time. A cooked tortilla will have light to darker golden spots on both sides.
To keep tortillas soft transfer to a tortilla warmer once cooked or stacked on a plate( if using a plate, cover tortillas with a clean dish towel). Serve warm.
Please use as many organic ingredients as possible.
