"Flour tortillas are a staple around our house. I make stacks of them on an old flat, well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Once you try these, you will NEVER buy them at the store again".


6 C. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
1 heaping C. shortening or lard
2 C. warm water, or more

  • Sift flour and salt.
  • Mix in bowl with lard or shortening and add water gradually.
  • Knead well to make a smooth dough.
  • Let it stand for 20 minutes in an oiled plastic bag.
  • Make into small 2-inch balls and roll with a rolling pin on a floured board into a round thin disk.
  • Cook on a hot, dry flat cast iron skillet, turning over once or until cooked on both sides to your liking.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen (approximately 9 inches in diameter)
