I have been making our tortillas for a few years now, but I find myself buying the store bought more than the homemade.
My family just does not like the whole wheat tortillas. I don’t care that much for them either; however, they are really good for Garlic Beef Enchiladas. You can’t tell they are whole wheat in that recipe. The other reason my family doesn’t like them so well, is that they are kind of oily. It is probably the recipe. Oh well…
Last week I tried another recipe.
I shape and cook the tortillas the same as I always have. Go here, if you want to see how I do that.
Semi-Whole Wheat Tortillas
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 TB of olive oil
3/4 cups of water (add TB more if needed)
Mix together and knead for a few minutes until you have a soft dough. The dough should be slightly sticky. I use my DLX mixer. Place blobs on a cookie sheet and let rest for 10 minutes. Then roll out or use a press. Cook on each side for 1 minute.
These came out really good. They even look like store bought tortillas.
This is what I heat and serve the tortillas in. It is big enough for my larger sized tortillas and keeps them warm and soft.
Everyone except the Violinist ate the tortillas. She went hungry. The Peas decided to have some entertainment with their food, during dinner.
I’ll be making these again! Yummy!
