Tortilla's from Scratch
How to Make Tortilla's from Scratch
- Add oil and warm water and I use a serving fork to mix this up, then I use my (Cleaned) hands and mix well, your dough should be moist but should not stick to your hands. I let the dough rest for about five minutes. Your dough should not need flour on the breadboard when you roll them out, its all in the feel of the dough.
- Now take and make balls out of the dough, I make 12, let this set a few minutes. Now your ready to roll them out, one at a time roll thick or thin your choice, make a circle about 6 inches across, I don't roll the perfect circle but just before I cook them I stretch them in to a circle as best as I can.
- You should have your cast iron flat griddle heated I have a electric range and I set my heat on 7,(one of my sister in laws sprays pam on her griddle when cooking) place a tortilla on griddle and cook til it starts to bubble, turn it over and just barley cook the other side, I like them just on the raw side, as when you place them in your tortilla keeper they will still cook as your placing more on top of them.
