Authentic Mexican Tortillas & Fish Nugget Filling


Are you a fan of Spain mama?
Then are you a supporter of Germany?
Errr....Not really....
Then who are you supporting?

That was the same answer given by hubby when Syahmi had asked his dad, which football team is the daddy supporting. Yesterday night, hubby actually stayed up to watch the match. Of course he can managed to stay up. He slept nicely before the game started. I didn't watch the whole match. I guess the TV was watching me more! Hahaha......

The recipe :


Source : Jamie Mikall Martinez of AllRecipes dot com

Ingredients :
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup hot water

Method :

1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Either by hand or with a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening till the mixture is crumbly. If the mixture looks more floury than crumbly, be sure to add just one or two more tablespoons of shortening till it is crumbly. Add about 3/4 cup hot water to the mixture, or just enough to make the ingredients look moist.
2. With your hand or a large fork, knead the mixture making sure to rub the dough against the sides of the large mixing bowl to gather any clinging dough. If the dough still sticks to the side of the bowl, add a couple more tablespoons of flour until the dough forms a soft round shape. The dough is ready to roll out now, but it is best to let it rest. Cover it with a dish towel, and let it sit for about an hour or so.
3. Take the dough, and pull it apart into 10 to 12 balls. Lightly flour your rolling area, and roll each ball with a rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thickness.
4. Place each tortilla on a medium hot cast iron skillet. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla does not look doughy.

FISH NUGGET FILLING (for half the recipe of the tortillas)

8 pieces fish nugget ~ fry till golden brown then sliced.
3 button mushroom ~ sliced
1/2 red capsicum ~ julienned
1/2 onion ~ sliced thinly
1 teaspoon chillie paste

1. Heat olive oil and add in the chillie paste. Fry till fragrant.
2. Add in onion, capsicum and mushroom.
3. Add salt to taste and zeal.
4. Stir in the sliced fish nugget and remove from heat.

Since Syahmi is not a fan of fish nuggets, he doesn't quite like the filling. His likes the Tortilla though. Thanks to AllRecipes for sharing the recipe with us.

Have a nice day!
