My culinary expertise is clearly in Italian and American foods, but occasionally I venture out of my comfort zone and try something new. We had leftover rotisserie chicken (meal 3 or 4 from a Costco whole chicken) and thought a nice simple chicken burrito would be good for dinner.
I’ve been wanting to make homemade tortillas and thought I’d cook the flour version. The recipe is easy, it reminded me of pizza dough without yeast. It seemed simple enough…..
The first tortilla came out fairly round. Yay! The second one came out looking like a misshapen kidney. The third one looked more like Italian flatbread. Well, there you go, right back to Italian cuisine. Obviously, I didn’t quite get the technique of forming the tortillas down. It’s evident to me that it will take much more practice than I’m willing to do. My hubby said my tortillas looked more like “naan” tortillas (get it? Naan, for non). Well, it was funny at the time he said it.
These were easy to make, and they weren’t particularly time-consuming but only made eight smallish tortillas. Would I make them again? Probably… maybe… well… I’d rather make Italian flatbread instead and buy my tortillas.
Tip: Don’t wear black pants when working with flour. Maybe it’s just me, but flour always seems to end up all over me when I’m working with it. Well, to be honest, it ends up all over the counter and floor too.
