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.

Directions

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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!
user Lynn Socko lynnsocko - Aug 13, 2012
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.
