Homemade Tortilla

Thursday, April 4, 2013

I'd never thought that making homemade tortilla was a easy thing to do but I was so wrong. Not only is easy but I had fun using my rolling pin (I had never used before), it's a great way to get your stress out of the way!

I found this recipe at TastyKitchen.

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup hot water

1. In a bowl mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.
2. Add the oil and mix with your fingers until crumbly.
3. Pour in the hot water and mix until a ball is formed. Cover with plastic or a kitchen towel and let it rest for 30 minutes.
4. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll out on a floured surface, make it as thin as possible.
5. Cook on a hot, ungreased non-stick pan over medium-high heat for about two minutes on each side. Serve warm.

* Tip *:
1. If you prefer and want to make the dough ahead of time you can let the dough rest overnight. I tried it and it works perfectly.
2. Enjoy as tacos, quesadillas, fajitas and burritos.

I served my tortillas as tacos with some white rice and fresh cooked beans. It was delish!

I love homemade tortillas! And they are incredibly easy! I have been considering the purchase of a tortilla press though...it is a lot of work to roll out all that dough :-)
