Baby Burrito

baby burrito - 4-19-13

A while ago, I discovered a little “mix” to make tortillas.

It takes a while because of the “resting period” of thirty minutes, but the procedure is dead simple. Add warm water to the mix, shape into little balls, go do something else for thirty minutes, and then come roll out the balls into exceedingly thin flats and “bake” in the electric frying pan. I can fit three into my frying pan, and, after all three are started, they cook in about the same amount of time that it takes me to roll out a replacement for the one coming out of the pan.

I make half a recipe at a time because there are only two of us, and neither is a big eater. I still have seven of the original dozen leftover. Actually, they make good snacks – spread on a little butter, a little sugar and cinnamon, then heat in the toaster oven for a short time.

Be sure to look at the site for the mix. There are a number of other uses for it. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but they are intriguing. I’m wondering if it wouldn’t make a good coating for making Southern-style fried chicken. If anyone tries this, please let me know how it comes out.
