I first decided to make tortillas because I needed small ones for 2 bite shrimp tacos that I was making for a party. I couldn't find any the right size at the grocery store so I decided to try homemade ones. They are fun to make, foolproof and really delicious so now I am hooked.
You will have everything you need in your pantry:
This recipe comes from https://thecafesucrefarine.com/best-ever-homemade-flour-tortillas/. All the instructions are there in detail (along with pictures of perfectly round tortillas!! Not sure how she does that) but really you simply mix the dry ingredients, then slowly add the wet ingredients while combining. Let it go for 2 minutes in the mixer or knead for 2 minutes on your counter. Divide the dough into 16 pieces then roll each piece and let sit, under a towel for 15 minutes. Heat a pan to medium-high heat. Roll out each ball using a rolling pin and extra flour then place in the hot dry pan. Cast iron works best. When it starts to bubble, flip it and let cook another 2-3 minutes until colouring happens. If you freeze some, place a little parchment in between to keep from sticking.
They are great for tacos, quesadillas, or just as a wrap for some beans. A great activity while you are stuck in the house!!
