Soft Shells as Tortillas or Pita Bread!

Soft Shells as Tortillas or Pita Bread!

With a little bit of flour, you can bake these quickly in a frying pan. Tasty when wrapped with your favorite filling or stuffed like pita bread.

Ingredients: About 8 servings

Cake flour
100 g
Bread (strong) flour
100 g
Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
Vegetable oil or olive oil
1 heaping tablespoon
Water, or tomato juice (Tomato juice will give the wraps a pretty orange tone.)
130 ml
For Mexican-style Chili con Carne, see Recipe ID: 1177367


1. Combine all of the ingredients and knead together. At first, the dough will be sticky, but as you knead, it will become a dough-like consistency.
2. Once the dough becomes smooth and shiny, wrap in plastic wrap and let sit for about 30 minutes. If you substitute tomato juice for water, the wraps will turn out orange!
3. Sprinkle the work surface with flour, then thinly roll the dough. Since the dough has bread flour in it, they will shrink.
4. Bake directly on a frying pan. The dough will puff up. Grill both sides, then they're ready to serve. No need to oil the frying pan!
5. While it depends on the thickness of the dough, each piece should take about 3 minutes to bake. Pita bread takes a little longer. Be careful not to make the dough too thick.
6. Stuff them Mexican style with chili con carne, or vegetables, and bon appetit!
7. I used this recipe to make wraps and pita sandwiches.
8. Besides tomato juice in the dough, for fun you can also try kneading ichimi spice or puréed spinach.
