   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       c            white flour
      1/4   c            wheat flour
    1       tb           baking powder
    1       t            salt
      1/4   c            vegetable oil
      1/4   c            milk
    1 1/2   c            warm water
 
 In a large bowl place the white flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder
 and salt. Mix the ingredients together well.
 Add the oil, milk, and water. Mix the ingredients together so that they
 are well blended and a dough is formed.
 On a floured surface, knead the dough for 2 minutes.
 With oiled hands, form twelve 2-inch balls by rolling some of the dough in
 your palms.
 Roll out each ball so that it forms a 1/8-inch thick circle.
 On a heated grill place the tortillas. Cook them for 2 minutes on each
 side, or until they are done.
 Makes 1 dozen tortillas.
 Served at Casa de Martinez, Los Ojos, New Mexico. The recipe was given to
 Clorinda Martinez de Sanchez, Innkeeper, by an employee (Ursula). It was
 her grandmother’s. “In my opinion, these are the perfect tortillas!” says
 Mrs. Martinez de Sanchez.
