Easy Homemade Tortillas

It’s Cinco De Mayo and we have an easy dinner idea for you. My kids loved it and I don’t think I will buy tortillas from the store ever again!

Tortillas are easy to make, so I really wouldn’t call it a recipe. You don’t need fancy tools and they only have 5 ingredients, so you know whats in them.

DSC_6020

This recipe makes about 14 tortillas.

You will need:

2 3/4 cup of flour

1 teasp baking soda

1/2 teasp salt

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup warm water

Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the oil and water and mix until it forms a ball. You can divide your dough into small 1 1/2 inch balls or you can just pinch off pieces as you go.

Warm a skillet to a medium heat.

Roll your dough ball out on a lightly floured surface until its flattened. You don’t want to stack your uncooked tortillas or they will stick together, so I roll as I go. Cook your tortillas until they start to bubble a little and then flip. They don’t take long to cook and will brown slightly.

Thats it. So easy.

Top with your favorites, we like to use  Zaycon Fresh chicken with Spiceologist Chile Margarita rub, and a little pico de gallo with avocado. Its a quick meal with lots of flavor. homemade tortillas and fried cornMy kids love it with a little bit of ranch drizzled on top.

Monte Cristo w/ Zaycon ham

DSC_6000 bWhile making WAY too much french toast for my family this morning, I decided there had to be some way I could use the extra slices. I love a good monte cristo sandwich, and well, this is a quick cheater version. DSC_5941 b With a few ingredients I had in my fridge and cupboard and the leftover french toast, I was able to pull off a sandwich that even my kids loved. With the Zaycon ham deliveries happening right now, this is a great option to change-up just eating ham next to a vegetable and side dish. Since Zaycon ham is boneless, you can slice it thin and its perfect for this recipe. DSC_5912 b I used some ham, swiss cheese, a little mayo, some powdered sugar and/or jam.DSC_5943 bSpread a little mayo on both sides of the french toast, then add your swiss cheese and sliced ham. I heated a skillet just hot enough to melt the cheese and warm up the monte cristo.  DSC_5957 bI didn’t think the sandwich needed the jam since I sprinkled it with powdered sugar, but either way, its so good. Its great for a breakfast, brunch or lunch! DSC_5989 bThere is a little sweet and salty action going on here. The mayo gives it a bit of a creamy and delicious flavor as well. For some other recipes using our ham, check out these blog post here, here and here! You can go here to order any of our great products. What is your favorite ham recipe?

Our next ‪#‎ZayconLive‬ webcast is scheduled for Thursday, April, 23, at 12:30 PM, PST.

Reserve your spot here:http://zayconfoods.yourbrandlive.com/c/easychicken/

Join us and … See Delicious — Oh, and we are doing an awesome give-away during the show too.

For this classic dish, we are going to need a considerable amount of pent-up frustration to pound out Zaycon chicken breasts, so it’s perfect for a weeknight dinner! Rough day at work? Perfect. Did the kids paint the dog? Even better! Partner has anger management issues? THE BEST – have him do it!


DSC_5691DSC_5677We start with our old friend, the giant double boneless skinless breast that we are oh, so familiar with. Do a trim up, remove the rib meat lobe & any extra fat that might be there. Admire your work.

Next, you’ll want to butterfly the thick part of the breast to approximate the thickness of the thinner area. This might take two cuts.

Between two layers of plastic wrap, place the chicken sprinkling a bit of water between the chicken and the plastic wrap. This will help the chicken move and slide a bit during the gentle slams.

Grab your whacker implement and have fun. You’re going to try and get these to be as thin as possible – like 1/8” to ¼” in thickness. The thinner they are the better your result will be.

Brush the chicken with Dijon mustard, then place sliced ham and then cheese of your choice. Traditional cheese to use here is Swiss, I like gruyere too. If you want a really nice, long, stringy melty one, provolone would be great. Roll them up, tucking in the sides as you go to form a chicken burrito-looking roulade.

DSC_5783DSC_5797 (1)

Put this in the fridge for 30-60 minutes or more. This will firm up the chicken making it super easy to pan fry. Dip your chicken roll, first, into flour, then into an egg bath and then in bread crumbs. I used just regular bread crumbs here, but you can use panko if you like.

In a large skillet, add a tablespoon or so of olive oil and equal amount of butter. Pan fry each side for a couple of minutes, then into a 350 pre-heated oven for 20 minutes or so, when they are done, they will want to sit and rest for 4 minutes or so.

Get ready for the compliments.

Welcome to Zaycon Fresh with Chicken Across America – A Note From Mike Conrad, CEO

Hey from Spokane, Washington!

Lots of exciting things happening here. First, I’d like to introduce you to Zaycon Fresh. It’s our new name. And it’s a better way to describe what we do: bring farmhouse-fresh food to families at warehouse prices.

But it’s more than that. We’re also bringing you more opportunities to save throughout the year, hitting over 1,200 locations across the country. Our trucks (and our friendly drivers!) will be coming your way for at least one major event every month or so. Check out our 2015 Calendar, where you can see all our upcoming events and pick-ups for the rest of the year at a glance.

Check Out Our 2015 Calendar
But I’ve got even bigger news! To celebrate, we’re launching “Chicken Across America”— our biggest sales event ever. For just $1.69/lb. you can buy the fresh, all-natural, boneless, skinless chicken breast that’s our claim to fame. Now that’s something to get excited about!
Zaycon Chicken

So stay tuned and keep an eye on your inbox for opening day on April 13!

Zaycon Fresh is the next step on a journey that started a few years back. I was just a guy struggling to put food on my family’s table, any way I could. I was on food stamps. I did whatever it took.

Feeding your family shouldn’t be that hard. That was the idea behindZaycon. Some people told us we’d never get consumers to buy meat off a truck. We knew that to make this work, our products had to be extra-fresh, our prices had to be beyond good, and our drivers had to be super-friendly.

Since we had that bright idea, we’ve served hundreds of thousands of families in every corner of the country. Our drivers have become familiar faces in the community. Some of you even bring us cookies. We’ve built more than just a customer base. We’ve built an extended family.

We’re honored to have you as part of that Zaycon family, and we can’t wait to see you again.  We’re taking orders now for Bacon, Sausage Links, and other great products – and in just a few days, our signature chicken at just $1.69/lb!

You can save even more with our Refer a Friend program.  Share your personal referral link with friends and family and receive $5 in Zaycon Fresh credits the first time they order, and $1 for every order after that*. As long as they order, you keep earning! And there’s no limit to the amount you can earn. But hurry, because the $5 reward for the first-time orders ends on June 30, 2015.

So make room in the freezer. Fire up the grill. We’ll see ya in the parking lot!
