I LOVE me a good tortilla. I like them more than bread. I like them… a whole lot. I’ll spare you the analogies as long as you get the point…i love tortillas.
What i DON’T like is tortillas with aluminum in them. Or hydrogenated oil. Or other stuff I don’t want to put in my body. So the quest began… to make them! So I tried. Several times. To no avail. Wait what does that even mean? There was avail, it just wasn’t edible. What is avail when used in that context? It sure doesn’t mean available… hmm. Anyways. Back to the point….
I did it. I DID IT! i finally made a delicious batch of tortillas from scratch! Armed with the ambition to NOT make the long voyage to town for the one acceptable variety of tortillas that DOES exist at our local grocer, I tried again this morning. and. I. did. it. (successfully.) woot!!!!!
Here it is, for anyone looking for some yummy…
2 cups flour (I used one cup wheat, one cup unbleached white)
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
2/3 + 1/4 c water
Mix the flour and salt over here, the water and oil over there (in your measuring cup, if you like =)), make a well in the dry mixture, slowly mix in the wet mixture, make a dough ball, let it sit for 45 minutes, divide into 12 equal portions (i flattened it a little and cut it into 12 pie pieces with my pizza cutter), roll those into balls and let them sit for 15 minutes, roll them all out in flour, cook for 45 seconds on each side on just above medium heat, bada bing bada boom, TORTILLA YUMMAGE!!!!!
Why is that all one long run on sentence, you ask? Is it because I have bad grammer? No! It’s to illustrate how easy it is…. yeah I know it got a little out of hand…. but I hope you’re excited about it anyway!
Anyhow… here’s the finished product:
12 Circles of heaven. Hey, don’t laugh… my circles will get better with practice, i’m sure. =)
