Homemade Flour Tortillas

These taste so delicious with chicken fajitas. Mmmmm!!!

4 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons oil
1 3/4 cup lukewarm water

Mix all dry ingredients. Add oil and lukewarm water. Mix dough with hands until dough forms into a soft ball. After dough is finished, let it set in bowl with a towel or cloth over the top for about 10 minutes. Form dough into 10-12 small balls. Spray working area with a small amount of cooking spray. Roll balls into very thin circles. Peel away from counter or working area and carefully place in a preheated pan over medium-high heat. Cook 30 seconds to 2 minutes per side depending on heat. When the dough starts to bubble, the tortilla needs to be turned. It will be browned on the bubbles. Be careful not to burn them as they cook quickly.
