Cheesy Telitas Flatbread

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Place the corn flour, queso fresco, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, basil, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, the salt, and pepper in a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour ¾ cup of water over the mixture and use a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients until they come together into a rough dough ball.

Move the dough to a cutting board and knead for about 10 minutes, until it isn’t sticky anymore and is very malleable, like Play-Doh.

Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place a 14″ long sheet of plastic wrap on the work surface and lightly coat the entire sheet with nonstick vegetable cooking spray. Set a dough ball on the lower half of the sheet and fold the top half of the plastic over the dough.

Using a tortilla press, a rolling pin, or your hands, press the dough ball into a ⅛” thick disk, which is the telita. Remove the plastic wrap, place the dough disk on a lightly oiled baking sheet, and set aside. Reuse the plastic wrap (regreasing when necessary) to shape the remaining 7 dough balls.

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Slide a spatula under a telita and flip it int o the hot pan. Cook the disk until it is browned and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip it over and brown the other side, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Place the telita on a plate and repeat with the remaining dough disks, stacking each on top of the other.

Serve warm either whole or sliced into quarters.
