Servings 8 tortillas


  • 2-1/2 + cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup lard, or vegetable shortening like Crisco
  • 3/4 to 7/8 cup hot water


  • Using a fork, whisk together 2-1/2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Using pastry cutter, cut lard into flour mixture until it disappears. Add hot water a little at a time, whisking with a fork just until dough comes together in a soft ball, do not add too much water.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured pastry mat and knead, adding more flour if dough is too sticky. Divide dough into eight equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and then roll each ball into an eight-inch round on floured pastry mat.
  • Warm a cast-iron skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat. Cook tortilla about 30 seconds on each side or until lightly browned and puffy. Wrap the cooked tortillas in a warm cloth, to keep them soft until all tortillas are made.
