Blender Tortillas

 

1 1/2 cups water (I use filtered.)

 

1 cup flour

 

1/2 cup cornmeal ( you can vary the flours as you choose).

 

1/4 teaspoon salt

 

1 egg

 

Place water, all the dry ingredients and the egg into the water in the blender. Put your blender top on.

Place on blender and zap it awhile.

 

I use a beautiful high quality teflon pan I have because I can rotate after I pour the thin mix into the pan and spread them out big enough to make a fair sized burrito out of.

 

Basically its like making pancakes. I use a fairly hot burner, and the water cooks out and leaves a pretty elastic tortilla thats more yellow on one side than the other.. you know what a tortilla looks like in the store, but these are far more elastic. You can set them on paper towels but I find a warm oven , and just putting them on the rack inside the oven while I am making them, is just fine. I immediately use the warm, elastic tortillas with homemade refrieds and cheese or whatever else I want to stuff them with and fold and bake in a pan once they have been made.

 

I find using a blender is alot cleaner than making by hand, it saves the kitchen and clothes and hands from a big mess.

 

The teflon pan I have is a high quality past christmas present from my son, so I keep it immaculate and lined with toweling in the cupboard to make it last. It produces such a nice even heat all around, that I love to use it for the tortillas.

 

P.S. I do want to try some variations on the recipe this coming year. But its a quick bread source and very handy for food fillings.

And I will be working on replacing given away , moved away losses regarding all of my past cast iron stuff..... this is a major prep category I need to fill.

Leah!!! What a sweetheart you are!!

 

Somebody asked me for a recipe for these and I didn't have one...only..now I forgot who it was. But I'm also delighted with these. I might mess in them one of these times. I just hadn't gotten around to doing a search on this. What a great gift you just gave me. (I'm SO tired, having a Sjogren's flare up ...your post made my day!)

Wow, it certainly would work, the eggs might make it pretty thin and definitely bubbly if you can handle that much egg in the resulting quantity. I think I will stick to one egg however since I have cholesterol problems.

On second thought, using three egg whites would work too.

I guess its worth a try to find out, eh ?
