Frugal Kiwi from Whakatane has asked for suggestions for finger food. Angela from Whanganui responded with these suggestions,
“When I have a big crowd to feed I make burritos. A bit of mince can go a long way if you pad it out with beans and canned tomatoes. I make tortillas myself (they are ridiculously easy to make from scratch) and let people fill their own. They are always a hit. Here’s the Tortilla recipe:
• 3 cups plain flour
• 1 teaspoon of salt
• 1/3 cup vegetable oil
• 1 cup warm water
Combine flour, salt and oil in a bowl and mix together until crumbly. Add water and mix until the dough can be gathered into a ball. Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes – 2 hours. To form tortillas, divide the dough into 12 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and roll flat with a rolling pin until they are the desired thickness. Heat fry pan on high heat. Place tortilla in the pan and cook until puffed and speckled brown. Flip and cook the other side.
