Homemade Tortillas

3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup hot water
oil to coat

Mix together. Coat the ball of dough with a little oil to keep it from drying out as you work. Make about 10-12 balls out of the dough.

Roll each into a circle with rolling pin, being careful not to add too much flour, but just enough to keep from sticking.

In meantime, heat the cast iron griddle on the burner for about 5 minutes. Cast iron needs to be really hot. The key is to get the surface hot enough using very little if any oil, in order to cook the tortillas for about 15 seconds on each side until they get a little browned
