Number of Servings: 30


    2.5 cups whole wheat flour
    2.5 cups unbleached white flour
    2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups boiling water


Mix the flours and salt together and then hand mix in the oil. Yes, you will need to use your hands! Mix and rub together until it kinda looks like oatmeal.

Make a well in the center and pour the boiling water in. Stir together until dough forms and is neither sticky or crumbly.

Then roll into golf ball sized balls. For burritos, make them a bit bigger, for smaller tacos like we like around here, make just a tad smaller. Let sit, covered, for at least an hour or up to 8 hours.

Then we start rolling! (by the way - get your non stick pan started on a fairly high heat for about 5 minutes before you throw one on). You can go the easy way and buy a tortilla press for like 15 bucks, but as you can see - the el cheapo way works too! I like to roll a bunch at once, cook them, then roll some more.

Plop it down on a hot naked pan (no grease!) for about 10 seconds until you see it just start to bubble around the edges.

Flip over and let set for about 30 seconds. (Sometimes they puff up and I'll either just leave 'em or hold them down with a spatula, either way they turn out fine)

Flip over to the first side and cook for another 30 seconds. After doing a couple you'll begin to see exactly how high your stovetop should be set. You want them to cook quick, but not burn. Leave them undercooked and they can get dense.

It does take some time, as this particular day it took me about 2 hours to make a double batch, (60 or so tortillas) but they are so cheap to make and so much better tasting you'll never want to go back to store bought. And of course, it wouldn't take near as long if I'd just get off my cheap butt and go buy a press already!

    These are yummy! Do you have a second pan so that you can cook two tortillas at once? That could cut the time down significantly when you're making 60 at once. ;) - 2/8/09
