One of the benefits of having visitors in town is that I’ve been more inspired to make the same meals as what everyone else is having. My niece made a lovely meal-plan, so the other night I tried making enchiladas with flattened pieces of my safe bread as the tortillas, my “tomato” sauce, and ground beef. Keeping it simple. Lesson learned: that bread does not easily flatten with a rolling pin!!! It was pretty good, though.
Then they made tacos… and while I couldn’t decide what to put in the taco… I decided it was time to try tortillas again. My last attempt accidentally involved rancid corn flour (YUCK), so I figure that may be responsible for the failure.
Anyways, this time it WORKED! I added water to some oat flour (Only oats brand is what I use) until it held its shape and wasn’t too sticky, then rolled it flat between silicone mats, and fried it with a little oil.
My filling ended up being plain ground beef, some leftover lasagna bits, and I think some leftover cheese-like sauce. I ran out of time… next time I might try marinating the beef somehow (maybe in chicken bouillon? Or chia?), and I might use some fresh green beans to give a bit of crunch.
I was actually really impressed by how well it all held together!
I sense some quesadillas and empanadas in my future- YAY! And maybe I will also figure out the hard taco shells eventually… anyone want to help me test them out?
