How To Make Bisquick Tortillas
Have yourself a Mexican fiesta with some tortillas made from an uncomplicated recipe that requires minimal effort to make. It’s a simple yet versatile flatbread that can used for a dozen recipes.
- Sift together the all-purpose flour, Bisquick Pancake and Baking Mix, cumin, salt, and coriander into a large bowl. Set aside.
- Combine the vegetable shortening and milk until evenly incorporated.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a dough is formed.
- Dust the work surface with flour. Transfer the dough onto the surface and cover your hands with a bit of flour. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, then divide the dough into as many portions as you wish.
- Roll the dough portions into balls and roll each dough into a thin sheet using a floured rolling pin. Make sure to apply flour to your rolling pin as well to keep it from sticking.
- Dust a cake ring with flour, then press it onto the dough portions to cut. Stack the cut dough onto a plate. Set aside any extra dough for future use.
- Grease and heat up a cast iron pan or griddle. Sear the dough portions until they show a brown color on both sides. It is normal for the tortilla to form bubbles of hot air during the searing process.
- Serve them either along with some yummy Mexican dishes, or lime wedges, sauteed bell peppers, guacamole, sour cream, and mixed cheese blend. Enjoy!
Tortillas are called thin flatbreads or small cakes that served up in various ways and in different dishes. Our simple recipe includes Bisquick baking mix, which makes it easier for you to do. However, if you want to try making it from scratch, you can try substituting all-purpose flour with cornflour or wheat flour depending on your desired taste and texture. You can even choose how thin or thick you want your tortillas to be. If you're eyeing for thin pieces, then they're perfect for quesadillas and tacos. For burritos, you can make it a bit thicker than usual.
