TEXAS, USA — The tortilla, what can’t it do? It goes with every meal, its portable (the burrito ring a beall?) and tacos.

There are no tacos without tortillas. Let that sink in.

So today for Food Friday we make our very own tortillas.

This recipe is quite simple and makes 5-7 tortillas.


  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • ¼ cup Water

Take dry ingredients and mix into a bowl.

Mix in olive oil.

Add water and knead until dough is firm.

Break off a piece of dough and roll into a ball. Flour a flat surface and rolling pin to help prevent the dough from sticking. Using rolling pin, roll until in a flat circle shape.

Place on hot flat surface to cook.
