Since he got back, so many thrills in my extraordinaire cooking is all he’s been talking and dreaming about. For instance, he woke up this morning asking for tortilla wraps – “with something” to accompany it with, and what better way to start this journey than with chicken tacos.
Today’s main focus is on the tortilla wraps. Here is a recipe I did 2 years ago. You can check it out here.
No need to head to your favorite Mexican restaurant when you can make fresh and soft tortilla wraps at home, with only a few readily available ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Prep time: 10 mins Rest time: 30 mins Roll time: 25 mins Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 1 hour 40 mins
- 1-3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 4 teaspoons of veggie oil
- 3/4 cup of milk (room temp)
- Chapati “flat pan”
- heat proof spatula
- Large mixing bowl
- Clean kitchen towel
- Wooden spoon
- Aluminum foil
Step 1: Prep the dough – First. add all the dry ingredients to your mixing bowl, then goes in your wet ingredients. Take out your wooden spoon and mix everything together until you get a semi – glued dough, that shouldn’t be too sticky. Start kneading the dough in the bowl, until you feel the need to transfer it onto a counter top surface.
Step 2: Let the dough rest = 30 mins – Once done kneading, cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and leave the dough to rest.
Step 3: Divide and roll it out – This dough makes up to eight pieces of tortilla wraps. Just enough for two to indulge get satisfied.
Step 4: Preheat the chapati pan – Over medium heat, let the pan get hot and once it get lightly smoky, add the rolled out wraps. You’ll notice, once you place your wraps on the hot pan, immediately, they’ll start to bubble up while the bottom gets toasted just perfectly. About one to two minutes, flip to the other side to cook and get toasted. Repeat the steps for the other wraps.
Step 5: Wrap with aluminum foil – to keep it warm until its ready to use and assemble.
Step 6: Assemble it – with your favorite filling. I decided to go with a chicken coleslaw filling that makes it a happy meal and is well balanced.
Here is the final look.
Making tortilla wraps is one of those recipes you cannot go wrong with. Just play around with different filling, try balance the colors, nutrient levels and flavors.
