Tortilla Adventures

Sometimes I'm a weird kind of lazy. I didn't feel like going to the store tonight, so I made tortillas. Granted, it's something I've been wanting to try anyway. I mostly followed this recipe and cut it in half.

The filling is a slow cooker salsa chicken, which is a combination of a couple recipes. I put frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot on high for four hours with some salsa, chicken broth, tomato paste, black beans, corn, and spices- garlic, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper and salt & pepper. Towards the end I added some instant brown rice and shredded the chicken. Yum!
I definitely will keep this in rotation. The tortilla was ok, but I think I might try another recipe next time that has baking powder in it. I'd also use less whole wheat flour next time (I did 1/2 and 1/2)
