Because filled tortillas are one of my favorite dishes, I decided to make my own flower tortillas. Recipes I found showed me that they were not at all hard to make. I was still a bit suspicious that it would not work out, so when I went to the store to buy the ingredients for the green chili recipe, I still bought a package of flower tortillas, just in case. But the tortillas worked out perfectly! They were really easy to make and tasted delicious! So much better than from the store..
300 g. of flower, 250 ml of hand warm water, 40 g. soft butter, 1 teaspoon of salt
Chop the butter into small parts and mix it with the flower, salt and water until it is a soft ball of dough. Chop the dough into 12 small parts and roll each part with a rolling pin until it looks like a tortilla (use some extra flower otherwise the tortilla sticks to your rolling pin). Make sure that the size of the tortilla fits into your pan. Heat up a pan and put a tortilla in the pan. Heat each tortilla on both sides until it starts to get a bit brown. You can prepare them in advance and warm them up later.
