History of the wheat tortilla

With the Conquest, the Spanish introduced the sowing of wheat in America. However, they did not have the necessary ingredients to make bread, so they began to make zaruki, a mixture of broken wheat with water, which would later become wheat flour tortillas.

Their preparation was very very basic, since they only needed flour, butter, water and salt. These tortillas were ideal to prepare and consume, due to the long explorations that the conquerors made in the New World.
