But for us ladies who are living in Algeria. It's not just as simple to go to the supermarket and buy the ingredients. Tortillas being the first thing on the list. When I first came to Algeria, tortillas was the first thing that I missed. So I have been making mine homemade for sometime. I could use a little work on my shaping but other than that it's perfect.
The photo above is the ones I made just this morning. You can see what I mean about shape work ....lol But this recipe is fool proof. Anyone can do it!!
Basic Tortilla Recipe
- 3 cups flour
- 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 2 tsp. yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- pinch salt
So now that we have our tortillas....dive in Baby!! For the filling I complicated things a bit. I like mine loaded and with no beef. Chicken is my preference or should I say hubby has a chicken thing..lol I must please the masses so here it what I used for the filling.
- 1 whole chicken cut up
- 1 onion
- 1 bunch of coriander (chopped)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- red pepper, black pepper, salt and cumin
- 2 grilled green peppers ( peeled )
- 3 cups grated cheddar
- 1 tbsp. sour cream
Now simply follow the video instructions! Fry lightly then bake in the oven for 15 mins until crunchy. I served mine with homemade salsa and sour cream. I will post my salsa recipe on a later date promise! The options are endless really. You could even serve with it some mexican rice on the side....YUM!!
