A Pioneer Woman on the screen I am not, but here’s my best shot at making a video of how to make homemade tortillas! it’s not easy to do your own video taping! Sometimes I entertain myself while cooking – watch and see what I mean!
Here’s the recipe:
Whole Wheat tortillas
4 Cups whole wheat flour – You can use all-purpose, if you prefer!
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup warm water – more if needed
Mix dry ingredients together.
Add oil and mix with your hands until it feels a bit like cornmeal. Add water and mix to make a soft dough that is easy to wlrk with. Knead a minute or so. Divide dough into 16 balls and let them sit, covered on counter for about 15 minutes. Press into tortillas with tortilla press.
Bake on ungreased heavy skillet or a griddle that is on medium-high heat. Cook them unto brown spots appear and then flip and cook on the other side.
You can find the recipe for the Beef Carnita Tacos here. I love to do these in the crock pot. The meat shreds apart beautifully and the flavors have cooked together all day and are so delicious!
Will you try your hand at Tortillas? It’s a fun project with kids!
