from the kitchen of Ellen, with thanks to Andy Broder


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • flour in mixing bowl.  Add oil and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • salt in water, and add water to bowl with flour.  Stir with the wooden spoon until you can gather mixture into a ball.  Place ball on unfloured board (if dough is sticky place a small amount of flour on your work surface) and knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-5 minutes.
  • dough tightly in plastic wrap and allow to rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
  • a bench knife, divide the dough into 24 or 32 equal sized pieces.  Roll each piece between your palms to form a ball.  Flatten a ball and, using a rolling pin, roll into a circle 3-4 inches in diameter.  Repeat with remaining balls, storing on parchment.
  • heavy skillet or griddle over medium heat.  Place a tortilla in pan and turn in 45 seconds.  Cook second side about 30 seconds.  There should be a few brown spots on each side.  Repeat with remaining dough.
