Homemade Tortilla Wraps

Whether it’s on its own, filled with cheese and ham or eaten alongside a chilli con carne, I love a good wrap!

I’ve never actually made my own tortilla wraps before and as we’re moving into our first home, I thought now would be the right time to start making them (cost saving and all).

These are so easy to make and really take no time at all once the kneading is out the way. My wraps weren’t perfectly circular (as you may tell) but they still tasted great for a first attempt. I just need to work on my rolling techniques!

We had ours with chilli con carne, one of my favourite meals.

Below is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 500 g plain flour, sieved
  • Half tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 g butter
  • 120 ml of warm water

Method:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the butter to the mix and then rub it all in using your fingers.
  2. Slowly add the warm water and combine until the mixture becomes a stiff dough.
  3. Lightly flour the work surface and turn the dough out. Knead for 10-15 minutes until it feels smooth and elastic.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 equal sized pieces and roll each one out so it forms a circle. The size really depends on how big you want them to be. Cover with cling film to stop them from drying out.
  5. Heat a frying pan or griddle and cook each one for 1 minute on each side. You should see the surface start to bubble and turn a light golden colour
  6. Add to your meal or leave to cool and fill with whatever you desire!
