FLOUR TORTILLAS
(Makes about 12 x 25cm Tortillas)

INGREDIENTS:-

500gms Plain Flour sifted
1/2tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
½ cup lard
½ cup water approx.

1. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Rub in the lard, and then gradually add enough water to draw the flour together into a stiff dough.

2. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it for 10-15 minutes, until it is elastic. Use the heel of your hand, using your other hand to steady the dough, preventing it from shifting position on the board.

3. Divide the dough into 12 even-size pieces and roll into balls using the palms of your hand. Cover the pieces with plastic wrap while you are working to stop them drying.

4. Press dough balls using your Tortilla Press.

5. Warm a large heavy-based frying pan or griddle over a medium heat. Cook one tortilla at a time, placing each one in the ungreased pan or on the griddle and cooking it for 45 seconds – 1 minute or until the lower surface begins to blister and brown. Lift the edge with a knife to check. Turnover and cook the other side for about 1 minute.

6. Wrap the cooked Tortillas in a clean, dry tea towel to keep them soft and warm while you make the rest.

POZOLE

Cook a medium sized pork roast till done (I do it in a pressure cooker for about 1 hour) and reserve liquid. Remove meat and let cool. When cooled, shred the meat and add to liquid in pan, add a tin Juantia’s Mexican Style Hominy with liquid, salt oregano, red chile powder to taste ( a good couple of tablespoons hot, medium or mild), cumin and 2 beef stock cubes. Simmer till flavours are combined. Serve with warm fluffy flour tortillas. Makes enough for a few meals and keeps well in the fridge.
Also Freezers well.
