  1. Mix ingredients and enough warm water to make a soft dough. On a lightly floured surface, fold dough over itself until smooth, but do not knead or overwork. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Divide dough into 12 egg-sized balls and semi-flatten before rolling by hand. Keep dough and formed tortillas covered prior to cooking to prevent drying. Preheat an ungreased cast-iron griddle or large non-stick skillet and cook tortillas over medium-high heat about one minute per side or until lightly speckled golden.
