As I approach the summer cruising season, I start to think about what new recipe I will be adding to the galley repertoire. We may not be planning an offshore trip, but inshore sailing doesn’t mean that you’ll have a grocery store nearby either. Sure I can plan a food provisioning trip, but the more options I can carry on the boat, the less reliance I have on little grocery stores that may only get new stock once a week.
This past year I found a homemade tortilla recipe. Over the years I’d heard about women in the office making tortillas but had never really gotten around to trying it myself. This past winter I found myself wanting fresh tortillas one night and thought I’d give it a try, how hard could it be?
Making tortillas is SUPER EASY! I browsed online and found a couple different recipe options and went with a basic one that sounded simple. Online there’s various tortillas recipes depending on how you like them, some people seem to have a preference to using lard versus olive oil, but I’m very happy with the basic recipe I found. Flour, salt, water and olive oil, basic staples I always have on the boat! I watched a YouTube to just check out the technique to see if there was something I needed to know, the answer was no, Tortillas are stupid simple to make.
So you know what this means? Now that I can make tortillas, even if I’m out of fresh/frozen chicken, with my galley staples, I simply pull out canned chicken, a jar of green salsa, Media Cream to make sour cream and I can have Mexican night at anchor!
Check on my earlier post for Media Crema and go here for the tortilla recipe.
These sound super easy! My kiddos love tortillas so this would definitely be a go-to idea!
Love this! I have failed at tortilla making twice now. I hope this is the winner recipe
