Method

30 MIN
 

Preheat the oven to 230°C.

1 TORTILLAS

In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking powder well. Make a hollow in the middle.

2 Pour the oil and water into the hollow and mix until a dough forms. Put the dough on a flour-strewn surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover with clingfilm and set aside for 30 minutes.

3 Divide the dough into 14 pieces of equal size. Roll each piece out into a paperthin oval on a flourstrewn surface.

4 Grease a nonstick pan with cooking spray and fry each tortilla until done or light-brown patches appear on the surface. Stack the tortillas and cover with foil.

5 MEAT

Season the pork fillets with salt and pepper and put in a marinating dish.

6 Mix the rest of the ingredients well and rub all over the meat. Cover and marinate for at least an hour or overnight.

7 Heat the extra oil in a large pan and seal the fillets on both sides. Put the fillets on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 7-10 minutes or until they’re done to your liking. Set aside for 5 minutes then slice thinly.

8 TO SERVE

Spread sour cream on each tortilla and put salad greens, avo, tomato, cabbage and fillet slices on each. Sprinkle with more spices if preferred and fold the tortillas over.
