1 lb Glutenous rice flour ( different from evil wheat gluten) 1 lb regular rice flour 2 TBS baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 3 1/2 c warm water 1/4 c oil ( I used olive) I used Flours from Talin, my local Asian store, $1.25 lb.

Step 2:

Step 3:

Roll into 2" balls and dust cutting board w rice flour. Roll out to 1/4 " thick. This is tricky, as dough is not as elastic as wheat.

Step 4:

Heat skillet (I used cast iron, it's the best!) and oil lightly (I used coconut oil). Carefully lift tortilla (spatula helps) and lay on skillet. Cook till brown spots appear then flip n cook other side. Enjoy!!!

Step 5: Yum

Picture of Yum

Here it is w my 3 Sisters Stew (hominy, beans, and squash w elk n red chile for good measure). I'm working towards a wheat free and affordable dough for fry bread, which is contributing to diabetes in most Native American communities. These were yummy but tricky to handle at first. I'll try a greater ratio of sticky rice flour next time cuz if it can hold up under chili and toppings its a keeper.

"Glutenus flour" will be a challenge to find for me (live in a 1 horse town), any idea what I could substitute with? I have most other flours available

This looks delicious. I just ate about an hour ago, and am hungry again.

Also, where is your Instructable about how to make the stew? This looks too good to miss.  I looked at your "other instructables", but did not see it. Please don't say that you have not done one yet! Just go ahead and write one up ;)
