Homemade Pecan Tortillas
photo by puppitypup
- Ready In:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 ounces toasted and ground pecans
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces warm water
- In a mixing bowl, place all purpose flour, salt, and toasted pecans. Slowly start whipping together, adding the warm water slowly until it makes a smooth dough. The dough should be smooth and lightly sticky.
- Let rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Make into 2 ounce portions when ready to roll out tortillas. Make sure to flour the surface to avoid the tortillas sticking. Place the ball of the dough on the floured surface and roll into 6 inch round tortillas.
- Cook tortillas on a hot griddle 1/2 minute on each side.

As the stars indicate, I liked these. Served with honey butter they were quite tasty. I had two problems with the recipe though, first, although I did add the water slowly, I added a bit too much. I needed less than half of the water called for in the recipe. I wasn't able to get that dough working so I started over with a second batch. On the second batch, I was able to shape the tortillas exactly as directed, and they cooked up beautifully, but when we tried to roll them for serving, they weren't pliable enough and cracked. I think tortillas probably need a little "fat" in them to be pliable. I will make these again as they make a good quick snack or breakfast. Thanks for posting Marra!

http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
