Tortilla Serving Bowl and Chips


I was playing around with some flour tortilla dough the other day and made some fun, bowls and chips.    I did get a little carried away with the salt when I was making the chips...but they were quite tasty.  The edible bowls are such a cute way to serve dip.


Flour Tortillas

2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/4 cup milled flax
1/4 cup wheat germ
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbls oil
1/2 cup warm skim milk
1/3 cup warm water
garlic powder
onion powder
coarse salt

Toss flour, flax, wheat germ, baking powder, and oil into a food processor. Blend everything together. Add water and skim milk and process until dough forms a ball. Pour dough out onto your work surface. If your dough is sticky, knead for a few minutes until it no longer sticks to your hand. Form into a ball and cover with a damp paper towel. Let rest for 15 minutes. Divide dough into three portions and form into balls. Let rest again for 10 minutes.

Cut one of the thirds in half.  Roll out into a circle and press into a greased tortilla bowl pan.  Brush lightly with oil and sprinkle on some salt, garlic powder, and onion salt.  Repeat with other half.  Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, or until browned nicely.  Cool on rack.  Spoon dip into bowl right before serving.

Roll out remaining dough into rectangles.  Brush lightly with oil and sprinkle on salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.  Cut into pieces with a pizza cutter.  Transfer to greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 425 for 10 to 12 minutes until browned.  Cool on racks.

  5. do these taste at all like wheat thins because they look just like 'em. If I was a party girl in that I put my dips in cool serving dishes, this would be on my next party plan list...maybe I should become that girl. Everyone likes their food in a fancy dish v. tupperware right?

  19. They taste a little wheat thinish....swapping out the white flour for whole wheat would probably bring the chips a little closer in flavor to that cracker.

    I'll have to twist it a bit to make it vegan. Can't wait!
