Tortillas are a great way to use up your leftover turkey. Here is a recipe for home-made tortillas and guacamole

Serve the guacamole and salsa with the tortillas with a plate of leftover turkey, chilli, and grated cheese

 

Tortilla

200g plain flour

1/2 tablespoons canola oil

1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Pinch of smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs (coriander, chives, parsley)

Large pinch of chia seeds (goes well with meat)/ cocoa nibs, crushed (goes well with fish)

100ml boiling water

 

Mix together the flour, baking powder, spices and herbs, seeds and salt in large bowl

Mix in the oil

Add water slowly, mixing with your hands to make a soft dough

Knead a few minutes on floured surface until smooth and elastic. Pour a little oil on the top, put back in the bowl and let rest, covered for 10 minutes

Divide into small balls the size of golf balls and proceed to roll out into size and thickness you like

Cook in dry heavy frying pan until top is slightly bubbly then turning on opposite side for a minute or two. Keep stacked and warm inside a clean tea towel.
