2 Cups Flour
1 tsp Salt
3 Tbl Shortening (Lard or Oil)
¾ Cup Water
Notes: These tortillas are great for tacos, fajitas,
Mexican pizzas, quesadillas, Mexican lasagna,
or just plain with salsa or queso dipping sauce!
In a Large bowl, combine Flour and salt. Add in shortening, cut together with pastry blender, or use hands (with gloves).
Add water to flour mixture. Stir until a dough is formed.
On a floured surface, knead dough about 12-15 times (or about 1-2 minutes). Let rest for 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. For larger tortillas divide into eight.
On a floured surface, roll out tortillas into 5-inch circles (7 inches if making eight). Repeat until all are done. Set Aside.
Grease a griddle or cast-iron pan. Once heated, cook each side of the tortilla about 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat the process for each tortilla.
Serve with choice of toppings!
