Recipe

Ingredients

3 cups self-rising flour1 tsp salt2 tsp baking powder2 tbsp solid vegetable shortening (or lard if you're into authenticity)1 1/8 cups water

Directions

In a Large bowl, cut shortening into flour. Add salt and baking powder. Stir water in slowly with a fork until large ball of dough is formed. Cover and let sit for 20 minutes. Turn out onto a board and knead until smooth. Divide into 12 pieces and shape each into a smooth ball. Flatten each ball into a four or five inch patty, the roll into a nine-inch round.

After each tortilla is rolled out, place it on a preheated, ungreased skillet over medium high heat. When blisters appear on tortilla, flatten immediately with a wide spatula. Turn tortilla often until blisters turn a light brown. Serve immediately or store in a refrigerator or freezer. Makes a dozen.

Awesome Tortilla Recipe

I love flour tortillas and they are so easy to make. Using lard is the "only" way to go. The flavor far outweighs the so called health risks. I like tortillas so much that I made my own tortilla press.
Pros:
Simple to make with very few ingredients. Easily adapts to make a larger batch for storing in the refrigerator or freezer. Much more economical to make your own. Make a lot, fill them with a burrito mixture, freeze them and you have quick and easy better burritos whenever you want which are better than you can purchase at any store.
Cons:
Clean up but if you make a large batch you do not have to clean up very often.
