All you need is a rolling pin. Make sure that the dough is a little sticky, if not then add a little more water to the mix. It should look like this...
Take a ball about this big...
Then let it rest that 10 minutes. You'll have an easy pliable dough. Roll it out with ample flour under and over it and make it thin.
Roll it thin...
Now, have your pan already hot and just lightly grease it, I use Pam. Throw your tortilla in and wait until it gets some light brown spots on it and flip. Wait until that side is speckled and it's done! Each tortilla will only take about 1-2 minutes to make. I usually make my next tortilla while one is cooking.
Now it'll rise some more, when it gets speckles, it's done...
The finished product. I got about 22 from my dough...
Here are some ideas that we are going to try this week or things we've done last week...
Lentils and Rice (yum)
Eggs and Bacon (yum)
Potatoes and Pintos (Dorothy)
Beef and Refried beans
on the side with soup (Split Pea is good!)
BBQ Pork or Beef
Really, anything goes!
3 cups flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup hot water
Combine first 3 ingredients. Add Shortening and combine until it looks like little peas. Add hot water and knead together to form a ball. Let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out in 10-12 tortillas and cook on a med hot skillet.
Here are some updates on my tortilla making...
I LOVE making tortillas! I make them once a week right now. The recipe is on my blog and since then I've perfected the cooking.
Enjoy! We are. :)
