Miquelita's tortillas (flour)

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups White flour
¼ cup Wheat flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Vegetable oil
¼ cup Milk
1½ cup Warm water

In a large bowl place the white flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt. Mix the ingredients together well.

Add the oil, milk, and water. Mix the ingredients together so that they are well blended and a dough is formed.

On a floured surface, knead the dough for 2 minutes.

With oiled hands, form twelve 2-inch balls by rolling some of the dough in your palms.

Roll out each ball so that it forms a ⅛-inch thick circle.

On a heated grill place the tortillas. Cook them for 2 minutes on each side, or until they are done.

Makes 1 dozen tortillas.

Served at Casa de Martinez, Los Ojos, New Mexico. The recipe was given to Clorinda Martinez de Sanchez, Innkeeper, by an employee (Ursula). It was her grandmother's. "In my opinion, these are the perfect tortillas!" says Mrs. Martinez de Sanchez.
