We love homemade tortillas. I enjoy making them and we think they taste better than bought. But in my admitting that "I can't do it all" tortillas are something I have been purchasing. But when I saw the homemade taco recipe in Mennonite Girls Can Cook, it so simple, I had to try it.
This recipe makes a batter and is poured in a pan, omitting all the tedious rolling that tortillas require. The result is more like a thin pancake or crepe then a tortilla. My family rolled up them up with meat, beans, cheese, and the works and loved them. If you are hungry for a soft homemade taco, give these a try.
slightly adapted from Mennonite Girls Can Cook
1 cup flour (I used half white/half whole wheat.)
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
Whisk ingredients together until smooth. Lightly oil skillet.
Heat pan on medium heat for one minute.
Pour 1/2 cup batter in pan, with back of spoon, swirl batter into a very thin circle.
Allow taco to set; flip and fry other side.
Cool on wire rack.
Fill with your favorite taco filling -refried beans, ground beef, chicken, peppers, onion, cheese, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, etc.
These don't freeze well, but I made a double batch and still didn't have any leftover.
We ate the tacos just like this but you could deep fry them in oil to become crisp if you wished.
