  4. Work dough with your hands until it holds together.
  5. On floured surface, knead dough until smooth. Divide dough into 20 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Cover lightly with plastic wrap, and let rest for 10–15 minutes.
  6. Flatten each piece of dough by hand, and then roll into 8-inch or 9-inch round.
  7. Grease large skillet, and heat over medium heat.
  8. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, and cook until light brown, turning to ensure equal browning. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

    I’d love to know the answer as well!

  • Blendtec

    I’m so glad you asked. We also like to provide recipes for those customers that have the Kitchen Mill. We are in the process of updating this recipe, and providing instructions for those who only have a Blendtec blender very soon.

    Yeah, same here. I dont understand why we have to use the Mill. We bought the regular blendtec because it says it can grind grains, and its the all in one machine, so why the need for the mill? I think you are just trying to find another way to make more money off of us.

    Also the texture of this mix is quite a bit more glutenous than I expected. A bit different to work with than a masa mix from the store, but it did work.

    Using the WildSide jar method I would advise using less water than 1 cup and adding more if necessary later. I used the exact amounts called for and ended up needing to add some all purpose flour. Another note, if you generally don’t like the taste of baking powder in things then you’ll definitely taste it in this.
