Home Made Tortillas

A beautiful and taste good home made tortillas. Yes, it is easy and simple to prepare, we just love it very much. Since I got this recipe from the website allrecipes.com, I have been making tortillas at home, voila! And the most beautiful thing is we can have different fillings of our choice. I just love the home made tortillas as it taste rich and soft unlike the packed ones.

The simple recipe to make tortillas are 1.3/4 cup flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 4 Tbs vegetable oil, pinch of salt and 1/2 cup hot water. Just knead into a dough and set aside for 15 mins before cutting into small rounds and rolling it flat to make pieces of tortilla. Heat the pan (no need oil) and brown both side of the dough. Here you are : Home Made Tortilla!

As for the filling, it is a mixture of :
  • chopped spinach - blanched it over boiling water
  • baby tomatoes
  • tuna chunks
  • slice of cheese

Just baked the tortilla with the filling for 20 mins at 200 C and it taste so yummy with the melted cheese! What I have learnt, baked tortillas with fillings are called "burrito" (mexican)........ Wow! It is good to eat and a wonderful discovery...

ooOOps! It was all gone before I could snap photos of the Burrito....
Photos shown are before baking.......

Yummy...... and healthy too! Enjoy your Meal
