Flour Tortillas

I made this using 3 cup of Bread flour, 1/2 cup of light Olive Oil, and 1 cup of warm water. I got 16 tortillas out of it. I loved them. I cooked ground, turkey, chili powder, cumin, some Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime and Extra Spicy seasonings. Topped my taco with chopped onion and cilantro, and a couple of shake of jalapeno sauce. Delicious!

I am so confused! My doctor took me off both flour and corn tortillas to help lower my high diabetes. Now you are saying it is okay to eat flour tortillas. The only difference I see in the recipe is that baking powder was omitted. So... do I or don't I eat flour tortillas? Dietitian comment: In general people with diabetes can eat either type of tortilla. It sounds like your individual plan includes avoiding tortillas. Please discuss with your doctor and dietitian.

Cooked in a skillet using dry heat. Very good but a little floury. Might take a few tries to get it down right. Will definately make again!

Simple and delicious, I only made half a batch though and it was a bit time consuming. Definitely worth it!

Made these, but only made 1/2 of recipe. I used 1/8 tsp salt and "cooked" in a cast iron skillet. I did not add oil, but cooked using only the dry heat. They turned out really good. I will be making again on Saturday.
