Notes

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water

Instructions

  1. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening by hand until mixture loosely holds shape when gripped. Add water and stir until well combined (dough should be sticky).

  2. On a well-floured surface knead dough until no longer sticky (about 10-12 times). Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Form dough into small balls and dip in flour until well coated. Roll to desired size (the thinner the better).

  4. Preheat a large skillet or griddle to medium high heat; place rolled dough in pan until bubbles form, flip over until bubbles form on other side then remove from heat. Enjoy!

I will never purchase tortillas again! These are awesome and tender!!

Sounds easy enough. Could whole wheat flour be substituted for white?

yes, but usually it's better if you use a mixture of white and whole wheat, just like most recipes would call for in making homemade bread
