I have tried to make tortillas about 5 or 6 times, I'm guessing. A few times just "soaked" whole wheat, and a few times with sourdough starter. I have never been really successful at it. Sometimes, like the last batch I had, the dough is so sticky or fragile that if I try to roll it thin enough it ends up falling apart on the way to the pan. Sometimes the dough was great, but the end product was not pliable at all. And every time, whether I've fried them in oil or used a dry pan, the oil that ends up in the air while I'm cooking them gives me a headache.
What do you do when you end up with strange fat tortillas? You go ahead & make easy chicken enchiladas from the Musings of a Housewife blog anyway! We actually make enchiladas in Rwanda using chapati & it's one of our favorite meals.
bone broth. (By the way, the nice thing about making the crock pot roast chicken I told you about last week is that the meat is already falling off the bones, so I got most of the meat off the bird before I boiled it.) I didn't have any cream for this recipe, so I used some creme fraiche instead.
All's you have to do is just mix the meat with some salsa (and I like to add sour cream or creme fraiche and this time I threw in some black beans too), dip your tortilla in the cream, roll it up around some of the meat mixture, throw a bunch of shredded cheese on top & bake. Super easy & good (even with crazy tortillas)!
What else can you do with crazy too thick tortillas? Make them into individual pizzas & warm in a 425 oven til cheese melts. It's a soft "pizza" but it works & is especially great in a pinch for another quick dinner.
So, at least for a while now, I am done with my attempts at making homemade tortillas. I bought some sprouted tortillas from the Ezekiel bread company & we'll have to see how those are. My husband also really likes the sprouted bread I bought from Nature Bake bakery (their bakery store is only about 30 minutes away & you can buy frozen bread in bulk for about $2.50 a loaf). I still have my sourdough starter going though, so I have not completely thrown the towel in... stay tuned!
Here's hoping all your kitchen adventures today are successful!
