Homemade Flour Tortillas

Rate this Recipe


Ingredients:

2 1/2 Cups Flour
2 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp Vegetable Shortening
1 Cup Hot Water

Directions:

  1. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the vegetable shortening and use a pastry cutter or your hands to blend the mixture together. It should resemble coarse crumbs.
  2. Gradually add the HOT water, stirring in between, until the mixture forms into dough. Gently knead the dough 30-40 times and shape into a ball. Place back in the mixing bowl and loosely cover with plastic wrap or a towel. Let rest for one hour.
  3. Portion the dough into golf ball sized pieces and roll into balls. Place on a baking sheet or platter. Loosely cover with plastic wrap or a towel and let rest for another 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Use a tortilla press to flatten each ball of dough, working one at a time, and using parchment paper on the top and bottom of the tortilla press to prevent sticking. Add each tortilla to the hot skillet and cook on each side for 30 seconds. The tortillas will become soft and slightly brown in places. Remove to a plate and continue until all tortillas have been cooked.
  5. ***Alternately, add flour to the counter and use a rolling pin to roll out each piece of dough into a flattened / round circle that is very thin. Add each tortilla to the hot skillet and cook on each side for 30 seconds. The tortillas will become soft and slightly brown in places. Remove to a plate and continue until all tortillas have been cooked.
  6. Serve immediately while still hot. If serving later, let cool completely and store in an airtight container on the counter. Warm in the microwave when ready to serve.
