Tortillas

March 23, 2011

I probably will never buy store-bought tortillas ever again. They are so easy to make & this recipe is healthy! My kids love them & usually eat them hot off the griddle. I’ve accepted the fact that mine will NEVER be round. As much as I try to roll them out round, it’s just not gonna happen…it’s fun though cause like the clouds you can usually find a fun shape with the tortillas….here’s an example: what do you see?

Here’s the recipe:
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut oil (can sub butter but please don’t use that horrible crisco stuff!)
1/2 cup water
Mix dry ingredients. Cut in oil with pastry blender or fork till looks like corse crumbs. Stir in water. Make into a ball, divide in half, divide those in half, etc until you have 8 balls or 10 smaller balls. Roll out & put on hot griddle (450). 2 minutes each side…you’ll have to play with the time…you want them soft to roll, but they can get crisp like chips. To look “authentic” let them blister.

    Hi, Michelle! I just got to your blog through the L&LI twitter list! 🙂 I grew up in Mexico so fresh, homemade tortillas are my favorite (sadly, I don’t ever make them fresh). I will have to try your recipe. If you are interested in making them round though, you just need a simple tortilla press. Something like this: http://tinyurl.com/3avrjox Looking forward to meeting you soon.
