Back in January, I read something about making your own tortillas, and it sounded so good I decided to try it. I found a recipe and mixed it up according to directions and tried to roll the dough out flat and cook it on a griddle. While I am sure that a Mexican would have no problem at all making tortillas that way I really struggled.
Let me go off topic a bit: I won’t torture you with the details but hubby had literally told me to buy my own Christmas present this year and it hadn’t gone over well at all with me, so I had decided I just wouldn’t get a gift this year. However the more I tried, and failed at getting these tortillas to roll out nice and round and then cooked, the more I wanted a tortilla maker. So I caved in and “bought my own Christmas present”.
Here is what I bought: Chef Pro 10 Inch Tortilla Maker
So excited to have my own tortilla maker I went to work again and would you know? They turned out so much better! The next thing I wanted to do was make tortillas that were a little healthier for you. I don’t like all whole wheat as I find them very heavy but I wanted them at least half and half.
All in the bowl now ready to be mixed.
Now that the dough is soft and smooth, it’s time to let the dough “rest”, it needs to rest at least 30 min.
Next it’s time to make your dough into balls.
Hubby puts lunch meat and cheese in these things and rolls them up for his lunches, he says they are way better than the ones you buy at the store! Now it’s time for me to try making chips with my tortilla maker!
