  • Sift together flour and salt into a bowl.
  • Work lard or shortening into the flour with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

  • Knead lightly until smooth and form into a ball. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

  • On a lightly floured wooden surface, roll out each ball until very thin. Cut off rough edges if desired.
  • Cook tortillas on a hot ungreased pan for a minute or two on each side.
  • Keep warm in a bowl covered with foil or a damp towel.
