About this recipe: Tortilla wraps come in many flavours these days, but none of the shop-bought wraps are as fresh or savoury as the ones you can make yourself.

Serves: 10 

  • 225g plain flour
  • 55g lard, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 120ml warm water
  • 1 teaspoon tomato purée
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

Prep:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:1hr resting  ›  Ready in:1hr35min 

  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the lard and rub it in with your fingertips until thoroughly incorporated. Stir in the salt, then add the water, tomato purée, basil and thyme and stir well to form a smooth dough.
  2. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 2 to 3 minutes. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for about 1 hour.
  3. Divide the dough into 10 pieces and shape each one into a ball. Roll out each ball on the lightly floured surface, keeping an even round shape, to make a paper-thin disc about 15cm in diameter. As they are rolled, stack them up, interleaved with sheets of greaseproof paper.
  4. Heat a griddle or cast-iron frying pan over a moderate heat until very hot. Cook the wraps, one or two at a time (depending on the size of your pan), for 20 to 30 seconds on each side, or until bubbles appear on the surface and they are lightly browned.
  5. As the tortilla wraps are cooked, stack them up on a plate and keep covered with a clean tea-towel. Serve warm, or allow to cool before using as sandwich wraps.
