Recipe: Whole wheat tortillas. Tortillas de harina integral (Mexico)!

I took this recipe from YouTube: Easy Cooking with Sandy and made half of her recipe. 500g of flour is still a large quantity. If you have about 10 adults, then 500g of flour would be good. Each of my tortilla is about 30g to 40g. Whole wheat is healthier than regular flour. The grain of a wheat has germ inside and bran (cover that is brown) and those two are removed and you have flour, the white flour, which you will find in most cakes, cookies, pasta recipes. It is more economical and has a better color. Whole wheat though is easier to digest. It has a brownish color. If you bake cookies with that, you will have a darker colored cookie. It tastes stronger as well. When you eat fish fajitas with regular flour tortillas, you will see that your stomach fills up quickly, at the end of your meal, you will feel pretty heavy. On the other hand, if you eat fish fajitas with whole wheat tortillas, your stomach will feel fine. If you can, try to replace regular flour with whole wheat flour. In the long run, it is better for your health.

1 kg whole wheat flour and some more for rolling your tortillas

250 g butter

2 tsp. baking powder

1 TBSP salt or less

2 cups water at 45C (115F) it is warm

1. in the flour, put little pieces of butter inside the flour, baking powder, salt and with your hands,  the dough until you get bread crumbs.

2. add water and continuing massaging your dough, until you have a ball. Let it rest for at least 1 hour in room temperature.

3. knead the dough and make little balls, each 35g, if you want your tortilla to be larger then make it 45g to 50g. (if you need more water or more flour, is up to the consistency of your dough)

4. roll out the ball to a circle tortilla.

5. in a skillet place the tortilla in medium high heat, when the tortilla forms bubbles, then immediately turn around, after about 15 to 20 seconds, take the tortilla out.

6. place the tortilla in a towel, so that it stays warm.
