How to Make FLOUR TORTILLAS HOMEMADE(SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift flour and baking powder into mixing bowl

    Add lard/butter to flour

    Mix together with hands until it reaches a coarse meal consistency
  2. Dissolve sea salt into warm water

    Drizzle water into flour and mix until soft dough forms

    Add more warm water a tablespoon at time if needed to make dough come together.

    Do not add too much water or tortillas will be rubbery

    Form dough into ball, cover and set aside for 20 minutes
  3. When ready to cook, separate into 1" to 2" balls (depending on how large you want your tortillas)

    Place waxed paper on both sides of balls and smash down evenly to desired size

    Alternate: Use a tortilla press if you have one
  4. Preheat non-stick griddle or large heavy non-stick skillet to medium high heat

    Note: I use a large West Bend electric non-stick griddle that will lhold 4 tortillas at a time.

    Remove waxed paper and lay tortillas on the heated surface.

    Cook about 1 to 2 minutes until just beginning to show brown spots.

    Flip over and cook the other other side the same way.

    Remove to a serving platter or tortilla warmer.

    Best served while hot.
  5. NOTE: If you don't use all the tortillas now, the unused ones can be stored in the fridge in a ziplock bag for a week or so and used as necessary.

    Just take out when needed, cover with a paper towel and zap in the microwave for about 20 seconds
