  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water add slowly, you may not need all of this water


  • In a Kitchen Aid Mixer with a dough hook (or a food processor), combine dry ingredients, mix to combine.
  • Add olive oil and mix again.
  • Add water slowly, while mixer running slowly (level 2), until you have a thick pie dough consistency.
  • Cut into 11 even pieces and roll into balls.
  • Heat a heavy skillet on medium heat. (I use a Le Creuset cast iron skillet)
  • Let balls of dough sit on counter a few minutes, covered, while pan heats.
  • Use a tortilla press to press each ball into an 8" tortilla (or roll out with a rolling pin).
  • Cook in skillet until lightly brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Cover to keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Can be reheated in the microwave for 1 minute, between barely damp paper towels.
  • When cooled store leftovers in a zip top back and refrigerate or freeze.
