  1. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In another bowl combine the warm water and oil.

  2. Add the water/oil mixture to the flour mixture, one tablespoon at a time and mix the dough with a fork. Once the water is mixed in, add another tablespoon of water and repeat the process until all the water is mixed into the dough. The dough will be sticky.

  3. Lightly flour a wooden cutting board and knead the dough. Add flour as needed to prevent sticking, stop when the dough is smooth. Place the dough back into the bowl and cover it with a damp towel or damp paper towel.

  4. Let the dough rest for 20 minutes.

  5. Divide the dough into golf-ball-size balls. Form each ball into a nice ball shape. Place the balls on a flat dish making sure they don't touch each other and cover with the damp cloth.

  6. Let the dough rest again for 10 minutes.

  7. Preheat a skillet or cast iron pan on medium high heat.

  8. Lightly dust your wooden cutting board with flour. Take one of the balls of dough and flatten it out on the cutting board to a 4 inch circle. Rub flour on your rolling pin and begin to roll out the dough starting from the center out.

  9. Roll the tortilla until it is 6 or 7 inches in diameter and about 1/8 inch thick.

  10. Once you have rolled out the tortilla, place it on a preheated skillet. You don't need to add any oil or butter. Cook the tortilla for about 30 seconds. You will notice brown spots all over your tortilla. Flip it over and cook an additional 30 seconds.

  11. Don't over cook it as you want the tortilla to be nice and soft. ?
