How to Make Beef Tortillas

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat a cast iron sauce pan with the olive oil and add beef, garlic, tomatoes, onions and jalapeño; gently sauté until the onion is softened and the garlic fragrant.

    Add the water, beans and seasonings and continue to gently simmer.

    Small Tomato Salad for the Tortilla Topping:
    Combine all of the above in a small bowl and mix.

    For the Flatbread:
    In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, pepper and baking powder. Mix and make a well in the center; add the oil and slowly add enough water to bring the flour together.

    Form the flour into a soft, springy ball.

    Four a clean surface and place the dough on the surface. Cut the dough into quarters; for into small balls and then cut in half again. Form into balls and roll out as thin as possible but still manageable to lift.

    Heat a cast iron pan and place the flatbread on the pan. When it bubbles and becomes firm; flip and finish cooking. Wrap in a cloth until ready to use.

    To Build the Tortilla:

    Plate the flatbread; fill with the beef followed by the tomato salad, sour cream and finally the shredded cheese; finally fold over and EAT!!
