How easy is it to just buy tortillas these days?  There is such a variety out there, its so convenient to pick up a pack from your local grocery store.  But if you fancy making these at home, try this very simple recipe.  It actually doesn't take that long.

- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- pinch salt
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbs unsalted butter (or lard)
- 1 tbs oil
- large bowl (my preference) or your dough mixer-maker
- rolling pin

1) Combine flour, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and baking powder
2) add in butter and oil...mix well
3) slowly add in 1/2 cup water, mix well....add more water until you get soft-playdough like texture
4) divide dough into 8-10 round portions
5) on a flat surface with a rolling pin and some loose flour, roll baby roll!
(because this is allpurpose flour, you really have to put your back into.  The tortilla might shrink a little but keep stretching it with the rolling pin)

6) Have a warm nonstick pan ready on the side (low to medium heat)...might have to add some cooking spray for the 1st one
7) Cook on both sides...let it rise if it does
8) Cover so they dont get try...or spread a little butter and devour right away.

We used them to make fish tacos and lettuce wraps :)
