How to Make Homemade Tortillas #BreadWorld


4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons lard (do not use liquid oil)
1 1/2 cups water


(1) Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.

(2) Mix in the lard with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal.

(3) Add the water and mix until the dough comes together; place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic.

(4) Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

(5) Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla.

(6) Place into the hot skillet, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side. Place the cooked tortilla in a tortilla warmer; continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.
