  • Large bowl


For the tortillas

  • 200-250 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 125 ml Water
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder optional

For the mexican chicken

  • 2 Chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 pinch Cumin large
  • 1 Chilli Pepper
  • 2-3 tsp Paprika Powder
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Sauce ready made


  • 2 tbsp Corn
  • 2 tbsp Beans
  • 1 handful Lettuce
  • 1 drizzle Spicy Sauce


For the tortillas

  • You need:200-250 grams of flour, 1 tbsp of oil, 125ml water, some salt and if you like you can add garlic powder. You need a big bowl and a little wet towel
  • Basically you mix all the ingredients in the bowl and mix them up! Be prepared to get messy hands. Sometimes if the dough is too wet just add more flour.
  • Mix it until it’s a big ball. Let it rest for 30 min under the wet towel. In the meantime make the filling. We explain it below.
  • After 30 min, you divide the big ball of dough into little ones. Make them as small or as big as you like. (We made little ones). You roll them out we don’t have a rolling pin so we use a soda can!
  • Then you heat up a pan or a cooking plate and bake the dough for about 1 min each side. Turn when they get bubbles.

For the fillings

  • Time to make the filling! This time we made pulled chicken. But you can also make it with other meat or even fish. We eat tortilla wraps at least 2 times a week because it’s easy and you have a lot of options.
  • You can boil the chicken for 12-15 min. After that let it cool down before you start pulling. We use 2 forks to pull it.
  • After you mix it with some Mexican spices. We used: 1 clove of garlic, pinch of salt, good pinch of cumin powder, a little bit of chilli pepper and lots of paprika powder.
  • After mixing we heat up a different pan with some oil. Mix the chicken with some corn, beans and a little tomato sauce. Put the filling in the tortilla with some lettuce and spicy sauce!
  • Time to enjoy! Greetings Bryan, Manouk and Pietje
