Cook Time:10



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


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.
