Handmade Mexican Flour Tortillas

How to make hand made Authentic Mexican style Flour Tortillas


Ingredients you will need:

4 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp of lard

Put flour, salt, and baking powder into a medium bowl and mix well. Work the lard into the mixture with your fingers until it looks like coarse meal.

Add 1 1/3 cups of warm water and stir until a soft dough forms.

On a work surface, knead 15-20 times and then cover and let rest for about 15-20 minutes.

Divide the dough into 16 balls for 6 inch tortillas and 8 inch balls for 12 inch tortillas. Roll out each tortillas to desired size.

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot. Cook the tortillas one at a time until blistered and charred in spots, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.

Wrap in a dish towel to keep warm.
