Description

Plain Jane (or is that Maria) tortillas. The recipe is from my mom and the first time I made them my son made me promise to never buy them again.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All Purpose White Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ cups Shortening
  • ⅔ cups Warm Water

Preparation

Mix dry ingredients together in bowl.

Cut in shortening until mixture resembles course meal. I use my food processor for this but you can do it anyway you like.

Add warm(~105 deg) water and mix until you get a pliable dough.

Put on floured surface and kneed until dough is elastic.

Let dough rest for at least 20 minutes.(very important)

Make into 10 balls.

Heat griddle/ pan over a med to med/hot flame. Do not oil the pan.

Roll out balls to less than an 1/8 inch, you want them thin.

Put immediately onto griddle/pan. Cook for approx 10 seconds on each side. On the first side you will see bubbles form, flip when the bubbles form. (if bubbles don’t form then the griddle is not hot enough)

Store wrapped in clean tea towel until ready to serve. Once cool they can be stored in the fridge.

Makes 10

Notes: you can subsitute lard for shortening, they would be more authentic and taste yummy, but we are watching cholestorol around here.

I made these last night using my cast iron skillet…they worked great! We ate them with honey and butter, fresh off the griddle. Divided into ten parts, they were pretty small (6″ radius).
