  • 1Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the shortening with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal.

Divide the dough into small pieces for tacos or larger for burritos.Roll each piece into a ball.
    Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. I use a griddle Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla.
