  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and olive oil to form a soft dough. Let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into 8-12 pieces (depending on the size of tortilla you want) and roll each piece into a circle.
  3. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat, and cook tortillas, turning when bubbles start to appear. The whole cooking process should take between 2 and 3 minutes per tortilla.
  4. Wrap tortillas in a towel to keep warm, and serve immediately.
