Homemade Tortillas

If you don’t feel like having your egg salad on bread or toast, you can also put it in a fresh tortilla, which you can buy or make yourself.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10-12 times, adding a little flour or water if needed to achieve a smooth dough. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in circle.
  3. In a greased cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook tortillas over medium heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute on each side. Serve warm.
