Flour tortillas are much easier to make than you may think. Give these a try next time you're making wraps or burritos.
Like so many things, you may want to consider making a big batch and freezing some of them for greater efficiency.
In bowl mix together:
Then stir in:
Set at least 2 cups of water to heat. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center, add lard or oil & the measured amount of boiling water. Mix thoroughly into a very soft dough (add water as needed), knead well, then cover for 10 minutes
Knead dough again briefly and divide into sections.
Knead each piece into a ball and let rest for 5 minutes.
Roll each ball into a 9-10" round, cook on a dry (ideally cast iron) skillet on the high heat until pronounced bubbles appear. Flip and continue cooking for about 30 seconds more or until dark spots form. Remember; anything less than pitch black is flavor! Your pan should be smoking (don't use non-stick on high heat!), and your tortillas should cook in under 1 1/2 minutes per tortilla. If you can, use two skillets, or even better, a griddle to make multiple at a time.
