Recipes: Homemade Flour Tortillas

Salvadorans love corn tortillas. Because of this, it is quite difficult to find flour tortillas anywhere (which is what we like). I've found a recipe that we like. It comes from the Bimi cookbook, called Feeding the Hungry Soul. I have altered it a little bit.

2 cups flour
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
1 cup boiling water
I like to add cumin and / or garlic powder

Mix all ingredients. Roll out small balls on floured board. Fry in dry skillet till brown spots appear, turn over. I've found this recipe makes about 8 tortillas.
