Flour Tortilla Recipes
We Answered:to make them thin, there is a kitchen gadget called a tortilla press, these will make them thin throughout and even, this is the best tried and true method... cook on a very hot cast iron pan with no oil until they get brown hot spots and they should inflate slightly inside, meaning the air trapped inside has been created to steam in the high heat, then turn over and do the same on the other side... they should be pliable, but if not, nuke in microwave for 15 secs before wrapping them into burritos, they should be more pliable when warm --- on anather note, have you tried making the dough with MASECA or MASA HARINA.... try that, mix w only water.... rick bayless and diana kennedy have some excellent books on the subject

Wendy Said:chicken enchiladas with flour tortilla recipes?
We Answered:you can use flour tortilla instead.. they will taste just as good.. you can cut them in 1/2 but it will probably be harder to handle.
what you can also do is warm you flour tortilla and in all the ingredients that you want (chicken, beef, olives, cheese, onion, beans) roll them up like enchiladas but fry or baked them seam side down.. once there golden brown you can pour a little enchilada sauce over them and sprinkle with more cheese and sour cream.. yummy you now have Flautas...
Misty Said:whole wheat low fat flour tortilla recipes?
We Answered:Here's at least one recipe that uses only whole wheat flour:
But most recipes use at least some white flour in their "whole wheat tortillas" because that will make them a little less dense and "dry." That can be overcome with fat/oil to some degree, but you'd also wanted to make them low fat.
(Corn tortillas don't usually have any fat in the recipe and are also whole grain, if you're interested, though you need a special kind of corn flour to make those, usually the one below, or fresh masa-for-tortillas dough, neither of which you may have on hand.
You could also make other whole wheat "flat breads" (there are often versions of those in various ethnic cuisines too, like chapatis, for example):
Stacy Said:Making my own flour tortillas? Any advice? Also want high fiber tortilla recipe.?
We Answered:Oh my God, you will so love your tortilla press! Mine's a Villaware. I've used it for over 5 years now and it's so dependable. If you order from them, you get a recipe booklet which has all those recipes in it. I've made the whole wheat ones before (can't find the booklet right now). And there's a great one for black bean tortillas. But here's the flour one...
2 cups AP flour
1 tsp salt (I use kosher)
A few good shakes of ground cumin to taste
1/4 cup canola oil
2/3 cup warm water
Combine flour through oil in a food processor. Then drizzle in the water until it's combined. Turn it out onto a floured board, knead, cut into balls (I usually do 8), cover with a towel and let rest for 30 minutes, then press. I stack mine between popup sheets of wax paper and then put them in a ziplock in the fridge.
They're so much fun to make, and you will never buy store tortillas again.
