Best Ever Flour Tortillas

 I got this recipe from the Mixing it Up With Grains class from Mary Ann Wilcox.  They are easy to make and use ingredients that are in your food storage, plus they have no fat!

4 cups flour whole wheat or white (I used 3 cups whole wheat and 1 cup white)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups boiling water (I added a couple more Tablespoons because it was too dry)

Mix dry ingredients together.  Add water all at once and mix together until it forms a ball.  When it is cool enough to handle, turn it out on a floured board.  Knead a minute or so until the ball sticks together.  Divide into 20 balls (you probably could make 30) about the size of a 50 cent piece round.  Roll each ball on a floured board into a very thin circle.  (I cut mine out with a bowl, so they are all uniform and look authentic).  Preheat griddle to 400 degrees (350 worked better for me).  Place on dry griddle and turn when browned on each side (about 30- 60 seconds each side).  Cool and store.
