So I have another very simple recipe for you all today. We had like zero food in the house, but we did have the ingredients to make tortillas! Specifically, gluten free flour tortillas! And if you don't have the ingredients to make these then you need to go to the store more than I do.

adapted from home cooking in montana
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk

combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Gently mix in the vegetable oil and milk until the dough forms into a ball. You can do this in a mixer or with your hands. I am mixer-less so I just kneaded the milk and oil in. If you are using gluten free flour like I am, you are going to need to use a lot more milk. I added 3/4 cup and it didn't blend well at all. Just add about a 1/4 cup of milk at a time until the dough forms into a ball. Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and let sit for 20 minutes. Then make eight balls out of the dough. Cover in plastic wrap again and let sit for ten minutes.
Time to cook em! Roll them out between two pieces of saran wrap. They have to be reallllllly thin. Like paper thin if you can. Then throw them into a hot pan. If you aren't using a non-stick pan then you might need to add a little bit of oil. But not too much because you don't want to deep fry them. Use a spatula to prevent it from sticking. Cook for about 30 seconds on each side and transfer to a plate.
These are really good fresh, and I had a hard time not eating them right out of the pan! but please, try to contain yourself and let other people try them too.
