I’ve never seen tortillas that weren’t sold in a plastic bag. So I finally learned how to make them from scratch. Turns out they’re really easy to make! Here are the ingredients you need:
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup lard (I’m a lard enthusiast. But you can use butter instead. Tenderflake lard is Canadian, so you won’t be able to find it in the US.)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup water
Combine flour and salt.
Add the lard and coconut oil. Using a pastry blender, cut the fat into the flour until the mixture resemble coarse crumbs.
Add the water. Mix until incorporate into a ball. Knead a few times.
Place the dough on a floured surface and divide into 12 pieces. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
Roll out each piece of dough to about 1/16 inch thickness.
Put a skillet over medium heat. Cook each side for about 30 seconds.
