Food Fridays on Empty Streets: Tortilla Recipe

Posted 7:01 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , ,
I have to admit that I haven't been visiting my favorite friends for the past couple of days because I have been terribly busy but I want to make you know that you are always remembered. So for my friends and readers alike I have prepared this special Tortilla Recipe for all of you.

Enjoy ;)

Serving Size : 12

  • 4 cups Unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 4 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups Warm water or more if needed
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. With a pastry blender, a fork or your hands, gradually work in the lard or shortening until it is all incorporated. Add enough warm water to make a soft but not sticky dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead for 5 minutes.
Divide the dough into 1/4 cup (3 oz) portions and form them into balls.
Roll each ball into a flat round about 6 inches in diameter and 1/8 inches thick.
Heat a large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Place the tortillas one at a time into the dry hot skillet; cook until brown on one side, then turn and brown the other side.
Remove from the skillet and keep warm in cloth towel.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I thought tortillas are hard to make. I'll take note of this and will try to make some one of these days. :)

Happy weekend.

Hi Liza,

Nope they are particularly easy to make. With the right ingredients and a good salsa dip you can start enjoying your tortilla in practically minutes and nothing is better than a hot crispy tortilla ;)
