Another Warm Tortilla With Butter Kinda Day


Day two of the ickkies... only today its hit physical porportions. Somebody do something would ya? I dont like being this way! Its not my nature! I'm gonna go call Ma and let her know that I dont like making my own tortillas.. I want hers:( maybe a lil red chili too...ok, and an egg.


Flour Tortillas:

4 cups flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or Manteca)

Mix all of the ingredients together with your hands into large ball. Wrap with plastic wrap drop back into the bowl, and let stand for 20 minutes. Form into balls that are slightly smaller than golf balls. Flatten each ball with a rolling pin into 6 to 8-inch circles that are 1/8-inch thick. Place on a dry, hot griddle ( Plata) and cook until brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side. This is all harder than it looks, call your Mother, beg.
