Homemade Tortillas

I think I could eat southwestern style dishes seven days a week. I just love the fresh flavors and spice combinations. And what goes better with southwestern style dishes than homemade tortillas!?
A while back I made these Chipotle Chicken Burritos/Lettuce Wraps. I ate mine wrapped in lettuce while the hubby ate his in store bought tortillas.
I try to avoid processed and packaged foods as much as possible so when I made the Chipotle chicken again this week I decided to make us homemade tortillas as well.
I’ve tried tortilla recipes before and they just didn’t come out that great. Either they were too dry or I couldn’t get them flat enough. This tortilla recipe, however, turned out great. The tortillas are soft and chewy and perfect.Homemade Flour Tortillas - The perfect recipe for soft, chewy flour tortillas - Sprightliest.com
I will definitely be making these again and maybe doubling the recipe so I can freeze some homemade tortillas to have on hand for whenever my southwestern food craving strikes…or just to have some extras around that I can turn into crispy homemade tortilla chips!

Ingredients
  1. 3 Cups Bread Flour (or all-purpose)
  2. 1 Teaspoon Salt
  3. 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  4. 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  5. 1 Cup Warm Water
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, using the dough hook attachment, combine flour, salt and baking powder.
  2. Add in water and oil while the mixer is running on medium speed. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl, if necessary.
  3. Once the dough is starting to come together, reduce the speed to low and continue mixing until the dough forms a smooth ball.
  4. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and divide into 16 pieces. (I shaped the dough into a sort of square and cut 5 times across and 2 times across the other way.)
  5. Roll each of the 16 pieces into a ball.
  6. Press and flatten each ball with the palm of your hand.
  7. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes.
  8. After the resting period, roll out each dough circle on a lightly floured surface.
  9. In a non-stick skillet over medium heat cook tortillas for 1 minute or until the dough starts to bubble and the bottom starts to slightly brown.
  10. Flip the tortilla over and cook for 20-30 more seconds. The tortillas should still be soft - they will become crispy if they are cooked too long.
  11. Stack on a plate to cool.
