HOMEMADE FLOUR TORTILLAS
Author: The Food Nanny
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl add then flour, salt and baking powder. Stir with a whisk to combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the shortening or oil and work into the flour with a fork or pastry cutter until the crumbs are the size of peas. (this is like making pie crust.) add hot water and stir with a fork to combine.
  3. Pour this mixture out on a lightly floured board or your counter and knead with your hands for 4 minutes to form smooth dough. Place the dough back in the bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let rest 15 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 8 equal balls and roll between the palms of your hands until the ball is as smooth as possible.
  5. Cut 2 pieces of plastic from a grocery bag slightly larger than 7 inches. (Plastic wrap will not work.) Place the dough in between them and roll out each ball of dough with a rolling pin to form a thin circle about 7 inches across. Save plastic for future use or, simply place tortilla in a tortilla press (at most kitchen stores) Set the dough between 2 pieces of plastic and press down with the tortilla press.
  6. Pre-heat a dry griddle over medium high heat or 350 degrees on the griddle, cast iron or pancake (preferably non-stick) Place the tortilla in the hot pan or on the griddle and cook for 1 minute or until small air bubbles appear. Flip over and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  7. During the 3rd minute the tortilla will usually puff up and then deflate. Small brown spots will form on the surface. Remove to a plate and cool. Once finished, the tortillas are ready to eat! They can be frozen for future use too.
