  • Put the flour, shortening, baking powder, and salt in food processor. With the machine running, add the water through the feed tube; process just until a soft dough forms. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and shape each into a ball. Roll each ball out between sheets of plastic wrap into a 6-inch round.
  • Set a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat and heat until a drop of water sizzles in it. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add a dough round and cook until speckled and slightly puffed, about 1 1/2 minute on each side. Transfer the tortilla to a plate lined with a clean kitchen towel; fold the towel over to keep the tortilla warm. Cook the remaining dough rounds to make a total of 6 tortillas, stacking them in the towel as they are cooked.
  • To reheat the tortillas, wrap each one in a separate paper towel or napkin and microwave on High until heated, about 5 seconds for each tortilla.

    These are so much better than the ones they sell at the store. Every other recipe that I'd seen called for pure lard. I did mine with some 99cent margarine and the taste and texture is unbelievable. I knew 6 wasn't going to be enough so I doubled down on the recipe if it didn't work out there are always pancakes. For the little bit of prep work that goes into these its well worth it. Oh the plastic bag idea is top notch..I had some giant freezer bags and it worked like a charm. Thank You !!! Hope I can do you a favor some day.

    Great, simple recipe! I followed all the ingredients but didn't have a food processor... I used my kitchen aide. Rolled them out on the counter with my rolling pin and fried them in a tiny bit of veg. oil.... made tostadas!! Brought the kids to the kitchen!

    These had a nice flavor and was very easy to prepare although both DH and I thought they were extra brittle. I only cooked them for 1 min per side and still they just creaked when trying to bend them. It was interesting rolling them between sheets of plastic. I normally just hand press them into circles. Mine came out odd shades, this may explain my pie crust. Thanks for posting. :)
