Let me dispel a foolish notion. You do not need a tortilla press to make good tortillas. You need butter, water, flour, and a frying pan. Not only are tortillas simple to make, they will elevate your burrito/taco/fajitas to a new realm of tastiness.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 c. unsalted butter
Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together. Cut little pieces of the butter into the flour. Mix in a blender until resembles cornmeal.
Mix in 2/3 c. warm water with a fork until a workable dough forms.
Turn out onto floured surface and knead 3-4 minutes.
Cut dough into 8 pieces for tacos or 4 pieces for burritos. Roll into a ball. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest 30 minutes.
Roll out each ball to 9 inches (taco) or 11 inches (burrito).
Heat a large cast-iron pan on medium-high. Place tortilla in pan and cook for 20-30 seconds until puffs and brown spots appear on underside.
Turn with tongs and cook an additional 20-30 seconds.
