“Some of my favourite go-to recipes to make are the simplest ones. The ones that, even if you’re feeling utterly exhausted and confused, you can still find that bit of energy to whip together and often the process makes you feel accomplished and more energetic than before! This process is made even more enjoyable thanks to beautiful local ingredients that get delivered to my door through Eat Local Grey Bruce. YAY for local food co-ops! This recipe for soft buttery flour tortillas is seriously perfect for... I don’t know… anything really! I've made them for grilled steak tacos with feta and salsa verde. I’ve turned them into crispy, cheesy flour quesadillas. They’re great with grilled halloumi, guac and fresh herbs—LOTS OF LIME. I hope this recipe inspires you too!”

Instructions

  1. Step
    Using a small saucepan, warm oil, 3/4 cups of the milk and 3 tbsp butter until just simmering. Don't boil. Remove from heat.
  2. Step
    In your favourite mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Step
    Add the warm, buttery, milky, mixture to dry ingredients with the remaining 1/2 cup milk.
  4. Step
    Stir with wooden spoon until combined, then turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 2-4 minutes until smooth.
  5. Step
    Wrap in plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour (this is when you get all your delish fillings of choice ready).
  6. Step
    Depending on how small you like your tortillas, cut into 8 or 16 equal pieces.
  7. Step
    One at a time, roll the pieces into thin circles—I like mine very thin.
  8. Step
    Heat a cast iron pan on low heat. Start cooking the tortillas one at a time in the dry pan, adjusting heat as needed as you go.They should bubble and puff up if the heat is right!
  9. Step
    Keep them cozy in a kitchen towel cocoon while you're cooking the other tortillas—they'll keep each other warm and stay steamy and supple.
  10. Step
    Now it's up to you! Grilled halloumi on the BBQ tacos? Crispy quesadillas with all your leftover cheese nubs (because let's face it -we've all been eating ALOT of cheese)? Or simply use them to dunk into Queso Fundido!
