WHEAT TORTILLAS

WHEAT TORTILLAS

(10 to 15 persons)

Ingredients:

1 lb. wheat flour
1/3 T. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
5 oz. pork lard or vegetable shortening
1 C. hot water

Mix the flour with salt and baking powder. Make a well in the center of the flour, add the lard, mix and add the water gradually until the mixture can be shaped into a soft ball. Make small balls called “testales” of the desired size and roll out the dough on a floured surface to make tortillas of the desired thickness. Place a tortilla on a hot comal or griddle and leave it for about a minute, and then turn it over for a third time, allowing it cook for another thirty seconds.
