These tortillas are much healthier than the white flour version, and they taste even better. Make sure you divide the dough into little two inch balls, then let the dough balls rest for a few minutes before you roll them out. It helps the dough to be a little more elastic. When you roll them out, use flour sparingly on the pastry board and rolling pin. If the dough gets too dry the tortillas don't taste as soft. Also, adding in a tablespoon of sour cream to the dough when you are mixing it helps the tortillas stay soft and pliable.
