Homemade Tortillas

This is one of our favourite recipes!
Use these scrumptious homemade tortillas for quesadillas, taco night, salad wraps or even pizza bases. Yum!

 

INGREDIENTS

•3 cups plain (or wholemeal) flour
•2/3 cup vegetable or olive oil
•1 cup warm water
•Pinch of salt

 

METHOD

1. Pop all ingredients into a mix master (with a dough hook if you have one) and mix for around 30 seconds until all ingredients are well combined.

2. Shape the dough into 12 equal balls, place in an oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Rest for 10 minutes.

3. One at a time, roll the tortilla out between two sheets of baking paper until around 2mm thick. Set aside with baking paper between the tortillas so they don’t stick to each other.

4. Fry each tortilla in a hot, dry pan for around 2 minutes each side until nice and golden. Place them straight into a large sealable lunch bag.

5. Place the bag of tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds so they steam and become nice and soft.

Tip: For hard shell tacos, drape each tortilla over an oven rack (we place them over 2 bars so they are nice and big, with a flat bottom). Spray with cooking oil and bake for 5-10 minutes at 180°C until nice and golden.
