As you’ve read in my Refried Beans post, we eat a lot of Mexican food. With that type of meal, you need tortillas. Problem is, where I live tortillas are expensive. Where I live tortillas can run for 3-4 dollars for a dozen. Umm, can you say overpriced?
The recipe for healthier soft tortillas located at the end of this post costs roughly 1 dollar for the ingredients and 30 minutes of your time. I kid you not. It’s that awesome. Another important factor is taste, and its puts the packaged tortillas to shame!
Let’s get started:
In a bowl dump in your flour…
and give it a good whisk.
Eat some chocolate, this is very important!
I needed the caffeine to roll all by myself . 🙁
Oh and by the way, that’s what a leek flower looks like in the back. It smells STRONG!
Any ways back on topic now:
Mix in some melted coconut oil, the secret to soft tortillas (and HEALTHY tortillas)!
Use a spoon until the spoon is no longer doing a good job. Wow, you know you’re diggin’ my action photography skills!
Then switch to the cutter thing. What’s it called anyway??? Keep you spoon put though, cause you will need it in a minute!
Now you are going to need some hot water (not boiling, just hot tap water will do). I didn’t realize how oddly I was holding the measuring cup until I was editing the picture so just bare with me here guys!
Cut the dough into 12 portions (just try to make them some what even).
Fry them up! This hardly takes any time at al per tortilla, so don’t walk away. Also no need to grease your pan. These tortillas will not stick and you will only be smoking your house up by greasing your pan.
So there ya have it folks. Healthier Soft Tortillas. They taste fabulous and its not hard. They are great for breakfast burritos, tacos, regular burritos, or anything else you crazy people use tortillas for!
I love y’all!!!
Here’s the recipe:
