    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Homemade Tortillas are so good! There is nothing like a homemade tortilla right off the stove. You can make them by hand or use your bread machine (both follow). Also you can use anywhere from 3 Tablespoons of shortening or lard to the 1/2 cup. I only used a 1/4 cup and they were wonderful. Flavored tortillas are made using dried pasta sauce mixes, such as Knorr brand. You can use any of the following: Red Bell Pepper Pesto, or Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto, or Garlic & Herb, or Parma Rosa Pasta Mix, Carbonara ,or Four Cheese. Cooking time is rising time.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 709.77 ml all-purpose flour
    • 9.85 ml baking powder (use 1 teaspoon for thinner tortilla)
    • 9.85 ml salt
    • 118.29 ml shortening (you can use anywhere between 3 Tablespoons to 1/2 a cup - 1/4 cup works well) or 118.29 ml lard (you can use anywhere between 3 Tablespoons to 1/2 a cup - 1/4 cup works well)
    • 177.44 ml hot water
    • 45.35 g package pasta sauce, mix dried (optional)


    1. 1
      By Hand:.
    2. 2
      Combine the flour, baking powder,salt, and optional dried pasta sauce mix. Either by hand or with a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening till the mixture is crumbly. If the mixture looks more floury than crumbly, be sure to add just one or two more tablespoons of shortening till it is crumbly. Add about 3/4 cup hot water to the mixture, or just enough to make the ingredients look moist.
    3. 3
      With your hand or a large fork, knead the mixture making sure to rub the dough against the sides of the large mixing bowl to gather any clinging dough. If the dough still sticks to the side of the bowl, add a couple more tablespoons of flour until the dough forms a soft round shape. The dough is ready to roll out now, but it is best to let it rest. Cover it with a dish towel, and let it sit for about an hour or so.
    4. 4
      Take the dough, and pull it apart into 10 to 12 balls. Lightly flour your rolling area, and roll each ball with a rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thickness.
    5. 5
      Place each tortilla on a medium hot cast iron skillet. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla does not look doughy.
    6. 6
      Bread Machine:.
    7. 7
      Combine flour, baking powder,optional dried pasta sauce mix, and salt in bread machine. Cut shortening into pieces about the size of olives, and drop inches.
    8. 8
      Start mix cycle and slowly add tap water. Let cycle run five or six minutes, then stop machine.
    9. 9
      Remove dough from bread machine, cover with a warm wet towel and let sit for 15 minutes, so dough can relax. (Do not skip this step or dough will be difficult to form into tortillas.).
    10. 10
      Pinch off egg-sized pieces of dough and roll into balls. Use a rolling pin to roll them into thin rounds.
    11. 11
      Heat a dry cast-iron skillet to medium. Transfer tortillas to skillet and cook until spots on the bottom are dark brown. Flip tortillas and cook on second side until spots are dark brown.
    12. 12
      Serve immediately. Keep warm in the folds of a kitchen towel if necessary.

      My first try at making tortillas was a huge success. Thanks, Cheryl. I served these using Knorr Red Bell Pepper Pesto and look forward to trying the other flavors. I served these with Aztec Guacamole Aztec Guacamole for Dugan's poker party where five hungry men became five angry men after they inhaled them and had none left and I made a double batch. I only used 1 tsp of baking powder because I prefer a very thin tortilla and will use even less next time.

      These tortilla's were great fun to make! I wanted to make tortilla's with a tomato sort of flavour...I couldn't find any dried pasta mix so I used 1 tablespoon of tomato paste and 1 tablespoon of italian herbs, added with the flour etc. I used a scant 1 teaspoon of baking powder. I'm pretty hopeless with rolling stuff into a circle so I rolled the pieces of dough out as thin as possible and then used a side plate to cut out I'm so happy with these tortillas...they look fabulous, taste great and really take very little effort.I'm always on the lookout for recipes that don't use artificial colours or flavours..this recipe will be used a lot here.
