Homemade Flour Tortillas


HOMEMDE  Tortillas

If you remember Homemade tortillas as I do my mom made the best, you could eat them alone, we like butter on them.

But you could do anything with them or fill them as you choose, I make them often way better then store bought and it only takes a few minutes, I recall my mom making a stack in not time, she did not a have written recipes, as most moms in that time,  a dab here and a pinch is all it took,  I have one that I have to refer to and this works well .

 

Homemade Flour TortillasFood and drink

Ingredients:

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons shortening or lard
1.5 cups hot water

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. With a sharp knife, cut shortening or lard into small pieces. Add pieces to dry ingredients and thoroughly combine with your fingers until a uniform consistency is achieved.

Add hot water and lightly work into dough.

Place dough a lightly floured surface and continue kneading until a smooth ball is formed. Divide dough into 16 equal sized portions and allow to rest under damp (not wet) cloth for 10-15 minutes.

Place each small dough portion onto a lightly floured surface. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a thin, round shape.

Tip: Turn the dough 90 degrees every so often to create a uniform round shape.

Preheat a large dry skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat. Add one rolled out dough circle and heat until golden brown, then flip and cook until golden brown on other side. here are a couple options if you do not have time,

I like the unbaked ones and grill them taste fresh.
