I’ll let you in on a little secret:
6 month-old baby on a nap strike + Recipe Book Wednesday = SHORT RECIPE. Having promised to post a few recipes which include homemade tortillas, I’ll just post the simplest one today. Hopefully it will only take about 15-20 minutes to write, because I think that may be my window. 🙂
These were our lunch at the zoo the other day, when it was unseasonably warm and impossible to stay in.
Whether you need a quick, portable lunch, a snack, or a dessert (throw a few chocolate chips in there), I hope you enjoy. There’s NOTHING this little recipe can’t do.
Peanut Butter Cigars
Warm a tortilla. I prefer to do so in one of three ways:
- in the oven
- in a cast iron pan over low heat (so it doesn’t get firm and crispy)
- in the toaster oven on a low baking setting
Spread a nice, gooey layer of peanut butter on the tortilla, and wrap it up long ways.
TA DAAAAA! Done.
You have just created the building block of an incredibly flexible recipe. Add jelly for a low-carb PB&J. Slice a banana and tuck it in there for a protein punch. Sprinkle on chocolate chips and coconut and squirt whipped cream all over the place (hit the tortilla with some – not just your mouth) and you’ve got a decadent dessert.
The tortillas themselves take so little time and effort to make, I hope you’ll give them a try. Save your body the effort of absorbing preservatives and needless ingredients, and make your own terrific tortillas!
