I am so lucky to have so many great grocery stores near my house. Within a mile I have a Whole Foods, a Trader Joe’s and lots of little stores called Fair Share. Each Fair Share is a little different. One that I frequent a lot caters to the Hispanic clientele and has a ton of great spices, different veggies, and just great things to explore. I love walking up and down the aisles learning about new things. As I walked down the baking aisle, I happened upon type of flour that said it was great for making tortillas! So, in my basket it went.
To make it, all you have to do is mix the flour with water. Mix it together with your hands to make a dough ball. Pinch a piece of the dough into 1 oz. balls (yes my kids helped me weigh!) Set the dough balls on a cookie sheet dusted with flour. Let rest for 30 minutes under a towel.
After 1/2 an hour, roll out with a rolling pin. I took a small skillet, and added a little bit of oil and swirled it around. Cook for about 1 minute on each side. My son Mark, who is 10 actually rolled out all the tortillas. I think he did a great job!!
And….the final product! We had a great time making these, and we will definitely do that again! Any leftovers can be stored for a week in the fridge, or just stick them in the freezer.
