I have a son who L.O.V.E.S. tortillas. He could eat them morning, noon and night and never tire of their soft, roll-y goodness.
Except they are full of so much badness! Or the store-bought ones are, anyway.
So I have been trying out tortilla recipes and I am ready to announce a winner. This is from a site I have linked before, OAMC (once a month cooking). My life on the farm is not predictable enough for actual once-a-month cooking to work, but I DO try to utilize power cooking ideas (double and triple recipes to freeze, doing meal planning and prep work on the weekend for the five day school week, that sort of thing).
Cut 10 Tsp of butter into 6 cups of flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour). I use my mixer and paddle attachment to do this. Dissolve 2 tsp kosher salt into 2 cups of HOT water (I think you could get away with less salt). Mix water into flour slowly and let it form a soft dough. Roll out on flour-sprinkled wax paper (you’ll need to be generous with the flour) and cook on an ungreased skillet until each side bubbles.
My kids think these are absolutely terrific. I made quesadillas last night with the tortillas, and stuffed one with tuna, spinach and red onions. The kids did NOT think that was fabulous but that was okay by me because that meant I needed to eat all of it.
Let me know if you try this out, or what you like best to do with tortillas at your house!
