Taco’s

Makes about 16 small tacos – we will make about 8 during the class, you can save the remaining dough in a bowl covered in cling film or roll the ball of dough in cling.

Ingredients:

  • – 185g plain or 00 flour – plus extra for dusting
  • – 20ml of olive oil
  • – 80ml water
  • – 0.5tsp of baking powder

Method:

Method:

  1. Add the flour, baking powder, olive oil & 80ml water to the mixing bowl, stir all together using a wooden spoon…once it all combines, take the dough with your hand until it becomes a springy dough.   If your dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. If too crumbly, add a little more water.
  2.  
  3. Set Aside – it doesn’t need to rest for long, but you can wait until you need to cook.  Then split into 3 – you will make your tacos, burritos and quesadilla later.

Tacos:

  1. Split dough into 8 balls, heat frying pan to high heat, while the temperature builds, sprinkle flour on clean work surface or board, and some on your rolling pin.
  2.  
  3. Take a ball of dough, flatten into rough circle with your hand then roll until thin, keep turning and flipping over.
  4.  
  5. Add 2 -3 tacos to your pan at a time and cook until you see the taco blister and char.
  6.  
  7. Once both sides cooked, keep wrapped in tea towel – this softens the taco.
  8.  
  9. Cook all your tacos and then you are ready to serve.

Burrito & Quesadilla: Split dough into 2, roll out to desired size and cook as above.  Cover and set aside.

Toppings:

You can top your tacos with anything you like, we will make a couple of toppings, avoiding the traditional gooey cheese and sour cream! Layer your preferred combination as you like – it’s easy to get carried away and overloaded, but that’s half the fun!

Shredded lettuce, cucumber, tomato, jalapeño chilli, cheese, sour cream, fresh coriander.
