This is a foolproof cake. You can’t mess it up, no matter how hard you try. It’s a sweet cake that’s good whether it’s light or dense, browned or spongy, soaked or dry. You can substitute evaporated milk for condensed milk (which I would NOT […]
Okay, before you all get intimidated and run screaming, this isn’t the fascist carrot, this is just tortillas. It’s easy! People think making tortillas is a very long, drawn out, complex process, but it’s really quite simple! And it’s good. Oh, is it ever good. They’re best fresh, all nice, and hot, and chewy… Darn. Now I want a tortilla. Go make a tortilla, and think of me when you eat it. That’s an order.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup warm water
¼ cup olive oil
Pour the flour
and salt into a bowl. Mix them together with a wooden spoon. Or spatula. Or your bare hands.
Now pour in the oil and water. That’s really all you need. And I don’t know if I’ve stressed this enough- THESE ARE SO GOOD. They’ll make you forget about the dumpster fire that this country is! And not many things can do that.
So mix it all up, it might seem like too much flour, but use a bit of elbow grease, and it’ll all be peachy. It’ll be a bit rough, so knead it!
Kneading does wonders for dough. You could make this in a stand mixer, and use the dough hook, but it can’t compare to when you do it by hand. Plus, it’ll give you muscles. I’m all for anything that gives you muscles. Except, you know, weights and push ups. That’s boring. Once it’s all smooth,
heat up a cast iron skillet or griddle, and grab a a bit of dough. Form it into a ball,
and flour it. My mom keeps a box of flour by the stove, and she just dipped it in on both sides.
Roll it out,
and throw it on the griddle!
Flip it over once it gets nice and brown,
and then remove it to a plate once it’s done.
Keep going til all the dough is gone, and then make tacos, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or just eat them plain with some avocado and cheese!
