Homemade Flour Tortillas

"Where did you go?" I sometimes hear from around the kitchen corner. There I would be, standing in front of my kitchen counter with a floured mixing bowl, padding together little balls of dough. "What is that?" Often guests get hungry, but too polite to say so. Not being of the bagged chips and handheld munching crowd, I tend to make a snack or two when the ingredients work. Homemade Flour Tortillas were a staple in my home for an appetizer, meal, or a simple side. Incredibily delicious and simple to make...what's not to love?! 

Servings: 12 tortillas
Prep Time: 10-15 min

3 Cups Flour, All-Purpose
4 Tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
~1 Cup Water, room temperature
Pinch of Salt

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a fork to mix the flour and olive oil. Pour in half of the water and continue mixing. Work/knead in only as much water as necessary for the dough to become cohesive and elastic, not sticky. Separate the dough into 12 balls and flatten into circles (use a rolling pin as necessary). Heat a skillet to medium and cook tortillas on each side until spots of light brown form. Remove and set aside to cool or eat.
