I remember when I was little and I went on a road trip with my mema. She took me to my aunts house in West Texas and there we had some of the best tortillas ever. They were home made by a Hispanic woman that was my aunt’s neighbor. WOW, but I never realized that I could make them so easily in my own home. They were so good I almost forgot to take a photo of it. And yeah, I put some cheese in the middle of it while it was still warm.
To make my own home made tortillas I was aided by IMUSA. They sent me a slew of products. I received:
- Avocado Slicer (1)
- Cloth Tortilla Warmer (1)
- Salsa Dishes (3pack)
- GlobalKitchen Citrus Squeezer (1)
- GlobalKitchen Tortilla Press (1)
First, I found a simple recipe:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons olive oil
Mix the flour and salt
Then slowly stir the water and olive oil into the dry mixture
Then knead 10 times.
Let rest for 10 minutes then divide into 8 balls
Flatten the ball using the Tortilla Press
Cook on a skillet sprayed with olive oil
Then cook each side until brown (about 1 minute each side)
Keep warm in the tortilla warmer
