Step by Step Method

Step 1

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and oil.

Step 2

Slowly add the warm milk.

Step 3

Stir until a loose, sticky ball is formed.

Step 4

Knead for two minutes on a floured surface. Dough should be firm and soft.

Step 5

Place dough in a bowl and cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap for 20 minutes.

Step 6

Break off eight sections, roll them into balls in your hands, place on a plate (make sure they aren’t touching) and then cover balls with damp cloth or plastic wrap for 10 minutes.

Step 7

After dough has rested, one at a time place a dough ball on a floured surface, pat it out into a four-inch circle, and then roll with a rolling pin from the center until it’s thin and about eight inches in diameter. Don’t over work the dough, or it’ll be stiff.

Step 8

Keep rolled-out tortillas covered until ready to cook.

Step 9

In a dry iron skillet heated on high, cook the tortilla about thirty seconds on each side. It should start to puff a bit when it’s done.

Step 10

Keep cooked tortillas covered wrapped in a napkin until ready to eat.
