Re: Cruiser's Biggest Provisioning Surprises...

Tortillas are one of the easiest things to make. Very basic recipe that I use:

2 C. flour
1/2 C. shortening (Crisco like)
3/4 C Warm water
1 tsp salt

-Cut shortening into flour and salt until like cornmeal
-add water and knead 1-2 minutes. Add flour/water if needed to firm up dough
-divide into about 8-10 small round balls
-roll flat on floured surface (it takes practice to make round ones, don't worry about your shape for now )
-brush off excess flour
-cook on un-greased skillet (cast iron is great for this) till bubbles form on top
-you don't have to flip to cook the other side, but you can

cooking only takes 1-3 minutes depending on your temp.
I generally roll out the next one while the current one is cooking
place on plate between towels to keep warm while cooking
they will last 1-2 days but do not have the preservatives of store bought
If you have a second burner to warm up (or make) refried beans, you are set!!!!
