Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas Recipe

Step 1

Combine flours and salt. Mix water and 2 ts oil, stir into flour mixture to make a soft dough. Divide dough into 12 even pieces. Shape each into a small ball. Coat palms with remaining oil. Roll each ball in oiled hands. Place in a bowl and cover with a cloth or plastic wrap. Let stand about 15 min.

Step 2

Preheat an ungreased frypan. Shape each ball into a very flat 4" round patty. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a 6 in circle. Cook each round on preheated frypan until bubbles form on top, and underside is flecked with brown but not too crisp and still flexible.

Step 3

Stack cooked tortillas, cover with a dry cloth towel. Serve immediately or reheat in 350F oven before serving.

Step 4

Cut in wedges and crisp to make chips for dips or serve with melted cheese and chilies as nachos.
