Simple Flour Tortilla Wraps

These tortilla wraps are amazingly simple to make and ideal for lunches or for fajitas.

Ingredients

  • 800g (1 3/4 lb) plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 350ml (12 fl oz) boiling water
  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Rub in butter to resemble texture of polenta. Add water slowly, mixing with your hands to make a soft dough. You may not need all the water.
  2. Knead a few minutes on floured surface until smooth and elastic. Lubricate top with oil, put back in bowl and let rest, covered for 10 minutes.
  3. Divide into small balls the size of golf balls and proceed to roll out into size and thickness you prefer.
  4. Cook in dry heavy frying pan until top is slightly bubbly then turning on opposite side for a minute or two. Keep stacked and warm inside a clean tea towel.

Adding spices and herbs will bring new flavours to the wraps. I highly suggest adding chilli powder or dried coriander.
