Recipe Of The Week: Chewy Tortillas

Chewy Tortillas

8 cups of soft wheat flour
2Tablespoons of salt
3 cups of milk or water warmed
2 Tablespoons of baking powder
3 Tablespoons of olive oil

In a mixer with the dough hook, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add olive oil and mix.  Slowly add the milk.  Knead for two minutes after the dough forms a ball and begins to cling to the sides.  Cover and allow to rest for at least 20 minutes.  Divide into 40 equal balls. (It works well to freeze the dough at this point for future use). Allow to rest for at least 10 minutes before pressing to rolling.  Cook on a griddle over high heat until bubbles begin to form.  Flip and cook a little longer until bottom has some light brown spots. Store leftovers in the freezer for best exults.  Good results can be made without a mixer.

Makes 40 tortillas.

Lizzie suggests adding onions, radishes, peppers, tomatoes or just about anything you want.  And I love this part...'of course you may prefer to buy your tortillas rather than making them.  This is fine, but making your own can be fun and adventurous and we encourage you to give it a try once in awhile.'
