  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour and cornmeal. Add baking powder and salt, and mix together well. Stir in water to form a crumbly dough. Work dough with your hands until it holds together.
  2. On a floured surface, knead dough until smooth. Divide dough into 10 to 12 pieces. Roll each into the shape of a ball. Cover lightly with saran wrap and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Flatten each piece of dough by hand, then roll into a 8 to 9 inch round.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease the hot pan, and place one tortilla in the pan. Cook tortilla until light brown, turning to ensure equal browning. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Fantastic! Great taste! Used whole wheat flour instead of white. It wasn't working for me to press them out between wax paper like I usually do with my tortilla press for another recipe I use,...

These were good, but not quite what I had hoped. This may have been something I did wrong but for some reason these turned out very stiff after letting them achieve the slightest browning. If I...

These were really good! I used a cast iron skillet heated on high to cook and that works better than a skillet. Watch out though, they cook really fast. Also I waited a little to long during the...

This was excellent, very quick and easy with delicious results. Am going to try adding flavourings next time, perhaps chilli, cheese or tomato & coriander (cilantro)?

This is a very easy recipe. To me it's like really thin cornbread. My kids had them for a snack. I hadn't even finished cooking them when they were asking for them and they really enjoyed the...
