Hi. My name is Brandon Sarkis on behalf of Expert Village. Today I'm going to show you
how to make flour tortillas that taste so good, you'll never buy the ones at the grocery
store ever again. Okay, just like we don't have a whole lot in the way of ingredients,
we don't have a whole lot in the way of actual equipment for today's recipe. We're going
to need a big bowl, something that everything will fit into. This is a nice, how big is
this bowl? I don't know, but it is big enough to fit everything into though. It doesn't
matter if it's plastic, it doesn't matter if it's metal. Since we're not really using
a mixer, we're just going to be using either our hands or a spoon to mix it all together.
So I went with a big plastic bowl. You're also going to need a large work space to work
on. Like a big cutting board. Preferably wood, because wood will actually pull moisture out
of the dough and keep it from being in the dough. So I recommend wood over plastic or
anything else. And you want to have lots of space. So just a nice big cutting board works
out better. You're also going to need either a rolling pin. I've got a little miniature
one here. Makes it a little easier to roll out the individual tortillas or a tortilla
press. But I wanted to show you how to make it using stuff that all of us have. Not all
of us have access to a tortilla press. If you do it makes it a lot easier. You just
kind of smoosh it over and there you go. But I'm going to show you how to roll them out
with a rolling pin. And a pan to cook them in. I'm going to use just a sauté pan. If
you have a flat top grill, that works fine. If you have a, just anything with a flat bottom,
you can cook tortillas. Obviously a flat top grill works better, because you'll be able
to cook more at a time. I'll probably be able to do one maybe two at best at a time, but
like I said, the whole point of this is to show you how to make flour tortillas with
the stuff you've got laying around your house. So let's get started.
