Flour Tortillas

4 c flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 (heaping) tsp baking powder
1/2 c oil
1 1/3 c boiling water

Mix all ingredients in food processor. Mix until it forms a ball of dough. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rest for 15 minutes. Uncover and form into balls about twice the size of a golf ball. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rest 15 min - 1 hour. Flatten with a tortilla press or a rolling pin. Cook on a hot skillet (no oil necessary), flipping when bubbles form.

We filled ours with refried beans from the cannery. So far they are the yummiest beans I have come across, even though I have tried multiple recipes from scratch. I added some powdered garlic and minced onion to taste. Super delicious. If you store powdered sour cream then you can add that too. Sometimes we have them with canned salsa and/or rice as well. One of our favorite meals.
