There is just something about a warm, fresh tortilla filled with savory meat, beans,crunchy veggies, and topped with spicy pico de gallo, fresh tortillas push your meal to a whole new level. Tortillas are really very simple. Especially when you use a stand mixer. Once you try them you won't go back to the store bought ones again.
Makes about a dozen tortillas
4 cups all purpose flour (can do half and half white and wheat flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1 1/2 cups very warm tap water
In the bowl of a stand mixer, using a dough hook, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix for 30 seconds to combine. Add the oil and warm water and mix until combined. Continue to mix/knead for 5 minutes.
Divide the dough into 12-15 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Keeping dough covered with a damp towel when not working with it.
Working on a lightly floured surface, roll each ball flat with a rolling pin one at a time, forming a 10 inch circle.
Meanwhile, heat a griddle or pan on medium heat. Cook on a dry hot pan
for 30 seconds on each side. Stack the tortillas and let them cool.
Store in a zip top bag in the refrigerator.
