Tortilla wraps!

What better thing to roll food up in and munch on.

I’ve had a request for some recipe ideas for things to put in wraps, but first I thought it’d be good to show you how to make your own wraps, it’s not as hard as you might think.

Ingredients (makes about 8 wraps)
  •     400g self raising flour
  •     1-2 tsp salt
  •     About 50ml olive oil
  •     300ml warm water
  •     Mixing bowl
  •     Sieve
  •     Rolling pin
  •     Frying pan
  •     Sieve (optional)
Cooking method (10-15 minutes)
  1.     First sift the flour into a mixing bowl, add the salt.
  2.     Add the oil to the warm water, now pour over the flour and mix with your hands until a dough is formed, if it’s too wet put some more flour on your hands.
  3.     Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes.
  4.     Cut into 8 equal pieces, roll them out into tortillas, I find it easier to do it just before cooking as the start to shrink when you stop rolling.
  5.     Heat a little oil to a medium heat in a pan, cook the tortillas for 1-2 minutes on each side until they start to brown.
I wrote a song but it’s more of a wrap

So there it is!

Whilst tortilla wraps are generally cheap enough (about £1 for 8, or around 12p each) making your own is even cheaper! (and more satisfying).

These homemade tortillas come in at a whopping 2p each, maybe 4-5p if you use fancy flour or olive oil, so you can get 6 for the price of 1!

I’ll be putting up some recipes for how to fill these tasty beasts soon so keep an eye out!
