Flour Tortillas

Lucia-Santos Hernandez


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

15 Min


3 c
all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp
baking powder
2 1/2 tsp
3 Tbsp
shortening (i use crisco)
2 or 3 c
hot water


11. Mix dry ingredients together
22. Then add shortening (I prefer Crisco). You can mix with your hand or use a pie crust cutter. mix well.
33. make a well and pour water slowly mix with a large spoon. or use your dough hook.
44. Mix till you have a nice smooth ball of dough. Just like when making Bread dough.
55. 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
66. 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
77. when roll out place on hot grill. less than a minute on each side.
