Lynn's notes for this recipe:
I looked at dozens of recipes and put together a very basic, simple recipe that met my needs. You can add 1/4 tsp. of salt for a approx. 23 mg. of sodium tortilla, or 1/2 tsp of salt for approx. a 53 mg. sodium tortilla. You can use a Bread Machine or Stand Mixer to do the mixing and kneading for you!!!

Be sure to keep cooked tortilla's refrigerated if not eaten within a day or two since there are no preservatives.

STAND MIXER METHOD: Add flour, seasoning if desired, water and oil. Using a dough hook, set on stir and let the dough mix. Scrape the sides of bowl after a few minutes. Let the machine work the dough for about 7-8 min. Add more flour as dough is working if it is sticking to sides or bottom of mixing bowl.
BREAD MACHINE METHOD: Place water and oil in bread pan, then salt if desired, then flour. Place on Dough Only cycle and let your machine do the work.
Once mixing and kneading is complete, divide dough into small portions (I made 14 out of mine and they made 6-8" tortillas). Form into a ball, roll out on floured surface as thin as possible.
Brown in very hot cast iron skillet or on comal or griddle. Cook on each side just a few seconds till browning begins.

I plan to cook these on the grill next time!

Hi Lynn! Do you use any cooking spray on your griddle or was it dry? Would a regular non-stick skillet work? And just what is a comal - I've seen several cooks mention it, but have never seen one & where would I get one? Thanks!

A comal is a cast iron griddle, usually round or oval. the thing is you want a good hot skillet, so if the heat wouldn't hurt the non stick that would be fine. And no spray oil. I tried it on one, but it justs burns the tortilla, the heat is so high. But the tortillas don't stick at all, when I would put one in the pan, sometimes I had to move it to get it centered, and it just slide like ice! I'm a novice at this, so this is my only experience making them so far, I have however read many recipes and it was helpful, especially the cooking directions. There are a lot of good recipes on here, you might goggle and read theirs just for some helpful tips. But I have to say, this was one of the easiest things I've ever done??? I expected it to be much harder. But I am use to rolling out pizza doughs and pie crusts so I know that probably came in handy. And letting the bread machine do the work was fabulous!!!

I would also suggest if you have a lot of flour on your tortilla before you cook it, you might brush a little off with a pastry brush, but I didn't really have that problem.
