abqmom’s tortilla recipe

Servings: It definitely depends on size, but it will usually make 12 tortillas.

Total carbohydrate:
Entire recipe is 191 and 7 grams fiber.
Each tortilla (12 per recipe) 16 grams Carb

Mix:
2 cups flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Then add:
2/3 cup WARM water with 2 tbs oil added.
Add enough additional water to make dough into a moist but not sticky ball. (If you add too much, just add enough flour to adjust texture.)

Allow dough to sit for 1/2 hour to 2 hours covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container.

Tear dough into golf-ball sized pieces.
Holding ball in your fingers, palm on top; use fingers to gently "cup" ball, rolling edges toward center of bottom. (If this is too confusing, just roll the thing in a ball with as little handling as possible.)

Using a rolling pin and a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 6-8" round.

Lift and place on iron skillet. When top begins to puff with bubbles, use forks to flip.
Cook for 1 minute more and remove. Stack warm tortillas together in a tea towel to make them pliable.

Note:
A more glycemic load friendly recipe is to use 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup wheat or oat bran and 3/4 cup unbleached flour. Increase water as needed, since whole-wheat grains usually require a bit more water to become pliable.
