I shudda known - it just never occured to me. I've seen videos, etc. on it, but kneading just gives a certain feel. When I get that lazy I'll buy wonder bread (yuk).

Hi - you stir together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 4 cups wholewheat flour and 2 teaspoons salt. Rub in 1/2 cup olive oil, make a well in center and pour in 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Mix with fork, sprinkle with additional flour and knead. Make little balls and cover with cloth. Let stand for at least 1 hour. Roll out and fry at high heat - as soon as you see a bubble forming on top turn over cook for about 20-30 seconds and turn over again and cook for another 20-30 seconds. Enjoy!

Mine came out very crispy. Did I do something wrong? They were good but not what I was expecting.

Maybe you didn't roll them out thinly enough? I made again last night and didn't roll it out as thinly as it was last time(my tortilla press aka DH was otherwise occupied) - it wasn't pliable enough to make tortillas with so I folded it in half and made burritos which were also nice. It wasn't crispy though.

Great job! You've inspired me to give tortillas a try myself.

Thanks!
