Over the years I have kept upping the amounts of whole wheat flour that I use and just lately (since we have no white flour in our house) I have been using 100% whole wheat and we like them. Yeah! I recommend making the change gradually so that you can get used to the different taste.
Here is the recipe that I use. I usually make 3 or 4 times the recipe as I like to have extras to save for another meal or so.
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup canola or olive oil or softened tallow
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup warm water
Mix dry ingredients together. Then add the oil and mix like you would a pie crust. Add the warm water and mix. Dough will be sticky add more flour while kneading until dough feels soft and light and looses its stickiness. Using a handful of dough at a time, roll out on a floured surface. Roll out several then heat dry pan (iron skillet is good) to medium (or a little above medium) heat before setting tortilla in pan. When the it starts getting a lot of air bumps flip to the other side. It will have a few brown spots. Watch them carefully as they cook quickly. This recipe makes 8 (10 inch) tortillas. They are quite yummy.

Do any of you make your own tortillas?
