I personally use my hands (yes they are very clean :)
but you can use your bread maker to mix all the ingredients or the dough hook on your mixer.
It is just like making bread dough

  1. 1. Mix dry ingredients together
  2. 2. Then add shortening (I prefer Crisco). You can mix with your hand or use a pie crust cutter. mix well.
  3. 3. make a well and pour water slowly mix with a large spoon. or use your dough hook.
  4. 4. Mix till you have a nice smooth ball of dough. Just like when making Bread dough.
  5. 5. I let your dough rest for maybe 3 to 5 minutes. while you are waiting. heat up your flat grill or cast iron skillet on med. heat
  6. 6. next make small dough balls about 2 or 3 inches.
    roll out your dough to about 5 to 7 inches.
    Just depend on how thick or thin you like your tortillas
