My friend Glenda taught me how to make tortillas. She’s much better at making them (better shapes!), but nonetheless, we sure love them around here. No matter how odd the shape! Tortillas, burritos, breakfast tortillas, fajitas. quesadillas, or enchiladas are all great ways to eat these! With where I live, buying them is out of question for our food budget, so we only eat them when I make them. We loooove them. 🙂

Wheat (or spelt) Tortillas

3 cups wheat or spelt flour
1 cup white flour
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup oil
1 1/2 cup warm milk

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil, and mix until crumbly. Add milk, mix until soft ball forms (add more flour if dough is still too sticky). Cover with a towel and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Divide into 12-16 balls of dough (or more if you want smaller tortillas). Roll to 1/8″ thin, you may need to flour your countertop so they do not stick when removed. Transfer to warm frying pan, on medium heat.

After about 30 seconds, flip over.

Make sure not to overcook them or they will get crunchy. If some of them do, make tortilla chips with them, quesadilla, or use them in enchiladas! 🙂 No waste!! Once cooked on both sides, place in between a towel so they remain soft while they cool.

 

Et voilà! Enjoy them! They are so good, and with so many uses. No wonder they disappear so quickly around here. 🙂
