Low-Fat Tortillas

Submitted by: EAQUAELEGIT

Introduction

I love making these flatbreads. They always taste better than store-bought, and don't have the preservatives. I love making these flatbreads. They always taste better than store-bought, and don't have the preservatives.

Ingredients

    3 cups unbleached flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    4 Tbsp. low fat margarine
    about 1 1/4 cups warm water

Directions

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Cut low fat margarine in with a fork, pastry cutter or just do it the old fashioned way and
use your hands.

Next, add warm water a little at a time until your dough is soft and not sticky. You do not
need very hot water.

Knead the dough for a few minutes.

Now you will pull off pieces of dough to form about 12 small dough balls. Let them
rest for at least 10 minutes, longer if you like. You can also cover them, and refrigerate.

This is a good time to heat up a fry pan. You will want to set it at medium to high heat.
If it is too hot the tortillas will cook too fast.

Now, you can roll out the dough with your tortilla rolling pin. It is a good idea
to dust each ball with a little flour just before you roll them out. Lay the rolling pin in the center
of the dough ball and roll up, center and roll down. It is good to lift the dough and turn it.
Again, rolling pin in the center and roll. Roll them out fairly thin.

Lay your tortilla on the hot fry pan. It takes just a few seconds to cook. Flip to the other
side. When they are done it should have lots of nice brown speckles. Place them in a
towel. If you would like you can use a tortilla warmer to keep them warm longer.
They are ready to be served!
