Homemade tortillas


  • In a bowl add the flour, water, seed oil, salt, baking powder, and mix with a spoon.
  • Once the dough starts shaping, keep kneading with your hands until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and set the dough aside for 20 minutes to rest.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat.
  • Cut the dough into 4 pieces. Dust your kitchen counter with the maize flour, put one of the dough pieces on it, and roll it out with a rolling pin until you get a very thin sheet, 25-30 cm in diameter.
  • Remove the excess maize flour and transfer the dough sheet to the hot pan. Cook it for 30 seconds on each side, until cooked through and golden, and then remove it.
  • Follow the same process for the remaining dough.

To serve

  • Place a frying pan over low heat and put one of the tortillas in.
  • Spread ½ of the cheese, half of the tomato cut into cubes, basil, oregano, and cover with another tortilla. Cook them for a few seconds on each side, until the cheese melts.
  • Follow the same process for the remaining ingredients and serve with oregano, basil, and olive oil.
