Mexico Part 3 - Making Tortillas!
On Wednesday of the trip, the ladies in the kitchen taught us how to make fresh tortillas! It was so much fun. I can't wait to try making them again!
The dough was made of flour, oil, salt, and hot water. She then kneaded the dough into a ball and we made little balls of dough, later to be formed.
We dipped the dough balls into flour so they wouldn't stick and used rolling pins to roll the dough into super thin circles.
Then she put them on the stove top and cooked them! So fun and tasty! I think the true skill is getting your tortillas perfectly round! Way harder than it looks!
The one batch of dough made 200 tortillas! Yummy.
