We bet that you didn’t know March is the designated month to celebrate flour. But, it’s true! Aaand, what is made of flour? Just a little hint: you love it and we use it every single day! That’s right, it’s tortillas!
Over time, corn tortillas evolved into a wheat tortilla made with unleavened, water-based dough that was pressed and cooked like corn tortillas.
Today, tortillas are the staple of many cultures and can be found worldwide. In America, tortillas are so popular that they rank only behind sliced bread for the most sold packaged bread. And that doesn’t count the chips. Mmmm, tortilla chips. I can hear Rudy cracking open a bag now.
From the manual tortilla maker to equipment which can produce over 60,000 tortillas an hour, anyone can make their own tortillas. And you guessed it, we have a recipe for you!
Flour Tortilla Recipe
These tortillas are soft, chewy and delicious. Try them in any of your favorite wrapped meals, but we of course like to flatten them thin enough, so they make great Toastillas! For us, the thinner the better, but it’s hard to pass up a tortilla as chewy as these. In fact, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and were afraid these little cakes won’t even make it to your toaster.
