I've always wanted to try making tortillas and have heard it's easy, but I just have never given it a go. Last week I finally decided to just go for it. It really was easy! Here you go, check it out and try making your own!
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. vegetable shortening
1 cup warm water
Mix dry ingredients. Add in vegetable shortening and mix in well with a fork. Add water and stir, then knead (about 2 minutes), to make a dough. It shouldn't be sticky, so if it is then add a little more flour.
Divide into twelve little balls, cover with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
On a well-floured surface, roll into a circle, nice and thin.
Plop onto a nice hot griddle. Wait just until bubbles form (it's quick, just a few seconds!) and then flip over for a few more to finish 'er up.
Enjoy with mounds of butter, then run three miles to burn off all the fat and calories. Like I always do when I eat something like this. That's why I'm so incredibly trim & fit. Yeah.
