This recipe is easy and pretty fast. Only 4 ingredients. Its worth the time it takes to roll and cook them.
Give it a shot.
12 8 inch tortillas
2 3/4 cups flour
5 tbsp shortening (I use butter flavored)
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup almost hot water
Put the flour, shortening, and salt in a bowl. Use your fingers or a pastry blender to completely incorporate the shortening.
Add 1 cup of the water. Mix with your fingers until combined. Add more water if needed.
Put on a lightly floured surface and knead for 1 minute.
Divide into 12 pieces and cover for 30 minutes or so. This lets the dough rest and is easier to roll.
Dust the dough ball and rolling pin with flour and roll very thin (or lightly spray 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll the dough between them)
I roll my dough as I am cooking the tortillas.
Preheat a pan to medium.
Place a tortilla in the pan. It will puff up. Cook 60-90 seconds on each side. Adjust the heat if it browns too quickly. Do not over cook.
