2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
5 Tablespoons Crisco Shortening
3/4 to 1 Cup HOT water
I use a Stand Mixer... and recommend you do the same... only because you need to use boiling water and it is way to hot for your hands.
I boil 1 cup of water in the microwave for about 2 minutes... You need super hot boiling water in order to get soft tortillas.
In the mixer add the shortening, salt and baking powder... slowly add the water until you get a nice, soft, pliable ball of dough.
Put the dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. You need to let the dough rest for at least 15 minutes. If you skip this step your tortillas will be hard and BLAH!!!
After you have rested the dough... roll into a log in order to divided in equal pieces.
Roll the dough into balls, cover and allow to rest for another 10 minutes.
On a generously floured surface roll out with a rolling pin.
Does not have to be perfect!!!
Throw onto a very hot griddle. I use an electric griddle and set at 400 degrees
When your tortilla bubbles... it is ready to flip
These are very easy to make and will go quick!!! I promise!
