Makes 8 medium tortillas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
3 tablespoons olive oil
2+ tablespoons vegetable oil for frying tortillas
1)In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in oil then water.
2)Turn onto a floured surface; knead 5-12 times. Divide dough into 8 portions. On that same lightly floured surface, roll each portion into circle - make sure you roll them very thin or they will be too much like bread and not a tortilla.
3)In a large nonstick skillet heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Once oil is hot, cook tortillas for about 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Repeat process until all the tortillas are cooked. (Note: I placed a paper towel on a large plate and then placed the cooked tortilla on the paper towel, then placed another cooked tortilla on top of that paper towel and so on until I was done. Once they were all cooked I patted them dry - just to get any extra oil off them)
