As I've been trying more and more to make our own bread, this week I ventured into tortilla making.
It's so easy!
Here's what you need:
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 c. shortening (could use lard or butter)
3/4 c. water
Sprinkle of flax seed
Measure your dry ingredients into a bowl
Add in your shortening
and mix til crumbly
Add in water and let your mixer do the hard work. Let it knead at a medium speed for a couple of minutes.
Your dough should look like this
Divide dough into eight balls
Let balls rest for 10 minutes covered with a tea towel.
Make sure you have a hot skillet
Roll out each ball to a very thin circlish figure
Homemade tortillas definitely *look* homemade in my kitchen...
Place tortilla onto hot skillet, cooking each side until you see bubbles. Then flip.
Tada! Hot, fresh, healthy-ish tortillas!
Have you ever made homemade tortillas?
Are you going to give it a try?
