soft Tortillas

Me encanta la comida mexicana, El alimento mexicano es delicioso, 

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup warm water
Mix these ingredients up. Using your hands, crumble up the butter  until it's a coarse texture. 
Add in the warm water. You may need to add a little more if desired for a looser consistency.
Dough should not bee too sticky or too dry.
Kneed it in your hands or mixer for a couple of minutes. Should feel smooth and elastic. 
Break into 8-10 golf ball-sized balls.
Get a warm, damp cloth and set it on top of dough balls for about 20 min.
Flatten balls into discs with hands making nice circles and then roll them out into tortillas with rolling pin. Get medium-hot griddle, and lay tortillas down for about 8 seconds and then flip (they should have a little coloring like brown spots) and cook for additional 60-90 seconds. 
May bubble up. Flip over and press down with spatula. They should puff up a bit.

Place finished home-made tortillas on a large plate and cover with a warm towel until ready to eat.
