Recipes Flour Tortillas

  1. Combine salt, flour and lard. Blend well by hand until a crumbly dough is formed.

  2. Add water, kneading the mixture in the bowl to form a dough of medium softness. It may feel like the water may not be incorporated completely, but just keep kneading.

  3. Divide money and roll between your palms to form balls that are about the size of the circle formed by becoming a member of your thumb and forefinger.

  4. Let the money sit for about 30 minutes.

  5. Heat a pan over medium, while you form the dough balls in to thin rounds with a tortilla press or a small rolling pin.

  6. Lay a tortilla on the hot pan. Bubbles should form quickly. Be careful, the steam that can escape from these bubble is very very hot.

  7. When your tortilla will be toasted lightly on the bottom, turn it to cook the opposite part.

  8. It will take a few practice to find the right heat to work with. You want your tortillas to cook through, but you also want them to be gentle and airy. Just like pizza, the goal here is to find the right dough consistency, and the right cooking temperature.
