We love to eat Mexican food; tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and chips and guacamole are regular part of our meal plan. If the food is infused with chili powder, cumin and oregano and involves beans, avocado, tomatoes and cheese, you can bet we’ll happily devour it.
Last week I was in a bit of a pinch and wanted to make tacos but didn’t have any hard corn shells or soft four tortillas on hand. With no time to run to the store, I turned to Google to help me find a recipe. In less than 40 minutes, my four-ingredient dough was frying up in a pan and tacos were happening in my kitchen.
The wonderful thing about making these wraps from scratch is that they don’t need to rise like other common bread products do. There is a little bit of resting time required, but otherwise it’s a process that involves quickly mixing a few ingredients together, dividing the dough into equal portions and cooking it in a dry skillet set over high heat.
The cost is about three cents per tortilla, which is a far cry from the normal four dollars I pay for a package. You can bet we’ll be dining on Mexican food a little more often now that we know it not only tastes good, but it’s also easy on the food budget.
