I tried it. It’s not complicated.
We often serve these tortillas – whenever we don’t have time to cook elaborately, or when friends visit and we want to be uncomplicated and sociable. Mostly when we have to turn leftovers into something delicious. And quite often, if we just feel like tortillas.
1. For the tortillas, put the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Stir in the lard or oil with a spoon. Then slowly add the lukewarm water and turn it into a smooth dough. Cover and set aside.
2. For the filling, quickly fry the mushrooms in a little oil. Add the chicken strips and fry them too. Prepare the cheese. Wash the lettuce leaves. Marinate the beans with a little bit of the oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
3. Divide the dough into 4 – 5 equal pieces and roll out flat. Heat a pan and bake the tortillas shortly. It is important not to bake them too long: They will become brittle and can not be rolled. Wrap the finished tortillas in a kitchen towel and keep warm. Proceed until all tortillas are baked.
4. Fill the tortillas.
The tortillas are also perfect for a picnic, as a snack in the office, or just on the go.
