Description

Simple and delicious. You will never have store bought again!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups White All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Lard
  • 1-½ cup Hot Water

Preparation

Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the lard and mix by hand until the flour resembles cornmeal.

Pour in the hot water a little bit at a time and mix until the dough comes together. Place it on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, approximately 3-5 minutes.

Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle pan over medium-high heat. Break off equal-sized pieces, roll into a ball and roll into a thin, round tortilla shape. Make sure your rolling pin is well floured.

Place on the hot skillet, cook until bubbly, flip and repeat twice. Wrap cooked tortillas with a towel or put in a tortilla warmer.

Makes approximately 24 tortillas.

This flour tortilla recipe is perfect, though I have never measured my ingredients. I just throw them in a bowl and mix. Learned to use canola or vegetable oil in my recipe. Works just as good if you dont have lard or shortening. These so look like my tortillas.
