How to Make Flour Tortillas


  1. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in the shortening until mixture has a mealy appearance. Slowly add water while mixing. Form the dough into a ball. Place ball on a floured surface and knead until firm, about two minutes. Divid dough into 12 equal small balls. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

    Heat a heavy skillet over high heat.

    Roll each ball into a thin @7-inch circle. Cook the tortilla for @ 1 minute on each side. Flip when tortillas starts to bubble up. Place in a bowl or basket, cover with a towel to keep warm. Continue until all the tortillas are cooked. Serve warm.

    If you have any left over, place in aluminum foil and seal tightly.
