The weekend is coming, how about preparing these flour spinach tortillas recipe? A recipe with which you can prepare in a much healthier way all kinds of tacos, burritos, fajitas or quesadillas! Surprise everyone with this super colorful new version!

From Mexican origin, flour tortillas are usually consumed with different types of fillings, resulting in a delicious and super tempting meal! Although they can already be found in their different versions in supermarkets, it is worth learning how to make them at home, without additives or preservatives!

Let’s talk about the recipe:

These flour and spinach tortillas are simple to make, they do not require great experience to prepare. The ingredients are simple and easily accessible in any store. But unlike other flour tortilla recipes, these in particular require an extra step prior to making them.

About the ingredients:

To make these flour and spinach tortillas I used 0000 flour, commonly known in other countries as all-purpose flour. In general, depending on your brand, it can absorb more or less amount of liquid, which is why I recommend incorporating gradually. As a result, keep in mind that the smaller the volume, the smaller the final product.

Like any traditional recipe, the ingredients to use are the same. The only difference is that in this version, it takes pureed spinach for its preparation. So the proportions vary because it is a dough with vegetables that provide moisture. So the amounts of the ingredients are adjusted and modified accordingly.

About spinach:

Despite the speed and simplicity of this recipe, this preparation has an extra step. Which consists of preparing the spinach puree that you can make with raw or cooked spinach. It can be can also make the recipe with chard, but as a preference, I choose spinach because it has more leaves and fewer stems.

However, if you have a powerful blender, you can save yourself this step by blending directly after washing them well. It may be that the machine being so thick due to its fibers it is difficult to work. Therefore, to help this process and make the machine work better, a little water is added. This way you will obtain a smooth and homogeneous puree.

About the tortilla dough:

It is a simple dough that requires few ingredients, it is easy and fast to make. As a result, a dry dough is obtained, which is not sticky. The amount of liquid is enough so the dough is easy to stretch and then, when it is cooked, it maintains that flexibility that characterizes them. In addition, having a fair amount of liquid will not require excess flour when stretching as well.

For the dough to become flexible it is necessary for gluten to develop and this is achieved by kneading. Kneading tightens the dough and this makes it difficult to stretch (retract). Therefore, once its preparation is finished, a correct rest is necessary for the dough to relax.

Once the dough is ready to speed up the times in a practical way, it is convenient to divide it into equal portions and make a bun with each of them. Then after the break, it proceed to stretch each bun of dough in a circular shape and as thinly as possible. When stretching the dough, consider that its size will shrink a bit during cooking.

With this recipe, the tortillas can be prepared in a personalized way, made to the size in fusion of their purpose. So depending on the dough weight, its final size will vary. To make tacos, between 30-40 grams / 0.066-0.088 pound of dough, fajitas 60-70 grams / 0.132-0.154 pound and burritos 100-110 grams / 0.220-0.242 pound.

About the cooking:

In addition to its easy preparation, its cooking is even more so. To do this, use a hot pan over high heat for 2-5 minutes. It is not necessary for cooking too much, as a result, the tortillas are not hard and brittle. In such a way that malleable tortillas are obtained, they can be folded and do not break.

Finally, the flour tortillas, hot and in the form of a pile, are stored in a food safe plastic bag. In this way, they retain their flexibility and malleability, taking advantage of the absorption of their own moisture that it produces during cooking.

The amount of flour and spinach tortillas that come out will depend on the weight of dough used. With this recipe, the dough was divided into 15 buns of 40 grams / 0.088 pound each. Which were stretched to 17 cm / 6.29 in diameter (approx.). During cooking they shrunk by about 1-2 cm.
