HOMEMADE FLOUR TORTILLAS

At Thursday, me & my friends are having a Mexican themed party. I’m planning to make Enchiladas Casserole. In order to do that, I need tortillas. Here in Indonesia, they’re a bit pricey and hard to find, that’s why I decided to make them from scratch. I found the recipe online here,  but I made one small alteration. I use 3 tablespoons of margarine, instead of 2 tablespoons lard. And though from the recipe’s reviews lots of them said that they’re pliable, mine are not. Maybe I made them too thick, but I like it a lot!

Ingredients

  1. 4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 3 tablespoons margarine
  5. 1 1/2 cups water

Directions

Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.

Mix in the margarine with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal.

Add the water and mix until the dough comes together.

place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic.

Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Use a well-floured rolling pin (I don’t have rolling pin, so i use drinking glass. haha) to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla.

Place into the hot skillet, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side.

continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.

Now isn’t this a lovely stack of homemade tortillas?
