Instructions
  1. Mix in the flours, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Make a well and add the oil.
  2. Mix the oil into the flour with finger tips.
  3. Using as much hot water as required, make a smooth pliable dough.
  4. Keep this covered with a damp kitchen towel and allow dough to rest for 30 minutes – 1 hour.
  5. Make 12 equal sized balls and roll out each one quite thin.
  6. On a hot griddle, cook both sides of the tortillas and keep aside covered by kitchen towels, until they need to be used.
Recipe Notes

Things you can do with tortillas:

Stuff them with your favourite fillings and tightly roll up to make Burritos.

Top with fried egg, refried beans, salsas and sauce to make Huevos Rancheros.

Snip into pieces, brush with oil and bake until crisp to use as Tortilla chips or use them to make fully loaded Nachos.
