At our home we make whole wheat tortillas. I usually double the recipe I use and freeze the tortillas after cooking. They thaw quickly, for easy snacks or dinner.
First mix all the ingredients and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Cut/pull/tear/rip whatever, blobs of dough off, about 2 inches wide.
Shape by patting and place on a greased cookie sheet. You must have a cute little helper, or the tortillas just won’t come out right. Let the dough sit another 10 minutes. Make sure you cover them or they will dry out. Meanwhile, heat up your tortilla press.
Place a blob of dough towards the center back of the VillaWare Tortilla Press
and press down until you hear a squish sound. Don’t hold it down too long or the edges will be too thin and come out rather crispy. That’s good for a cracker, but not a tortilla.
The blob should now be a nice round shaped tortilla. This one is a bit small, but cute. 😆 Cook on both sides for a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack. If you want to make them faster, press in the presser thing, then transfer to a griddle on the stove top to cook.
Once that is all done, you have to feed your helper. It is especially good if the tortilla is made with chocolate.
I bought a tortilla bowl maker thing. All you have to do is place your flour tortilla, once pressed and cooked some, into the tortilla bowl maker thing. That’s a techinical term, in case you were wondering.
Bake for a few minutes in the oven and … WaaaLaaah. It’s a bowl.
There are many other things you can do with a tortilla, but that is for another time and another post. 🙂
Oh by-the-way, the corn tortillas are made with popcorn kernals. You grind them in the mill to make a fine flour; also known as Masa harina. You can buy it in the grocery store, right next to the other bleached white dead flour. Did I say that?
Now go make your tortilla and fill it with taco meat and all the toppings that go with it.
