Homemade Tortillas

I am on summer break, so I am probably going to be trying out a bunch of recipes... starting now!

I like this recipe because it is easy to make and the ingredients are simple.

Homemade Tortillas

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
3 Tablespoons olive oil

1.  In a large bowl, combine flour and salt.  Stir in water and oil.  Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes.

2.  Divide dough into eight portions.  On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. circle. (Mine did not like to take the shape of circles... more like amoebas. Ha ha.)

3.  In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook tortillas over medium heat for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned.  Keep warm.  Yield: 8 tortillas.

These are meant to be used straight away, but I have frozen mine.  I hope that they keep.
