I can't recall the last time I bought flour tortillas.
Ever since Mr. Branflake started making them from scratch,
I can't stand the taste of store bought ones.
I know I'm a tortilla snob, but these are so good I can't help it.
Light, fluffy, and incredibly delicious-
I promise once you've made these, we'll be tortilla snobs together.
The recipe is super easy
Mix in a bowl:
3 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Oil
1/2 Tbs Salt
1 Cup Warm Water
Knead until dough pulls off your hands
(no longer sticky)
Cover bowl with a towel and let sit for 1/2 an hour
The next part, where you make the dough balls and roll them out, is the most fun part of tortilla making.
Well, it was fun for me to watch.
Disclaimer- roll out thinner than shown.
As thin as you can get it without breaking the dough, about 1/8 inch thick.
Put them in a pan without oil and let them go until they puff slightly.
Take off pan before they blacken.
For the filling, I fried cut-up chicken breasts with oil, salt, pepper, and roasted red peppers
I then garnished it with fresh salsa, black beans, sour cream and cheese.
I promise you will love them.
If you follow me on twitter, then you'll know that after tech rehearsal Wednesday night Mr. Branflake made me a beautiful burrito with his homemade tortillas.
That man... he sure knows how to keep a dancer happy.
