Soft and yummy! They taste like fresh tortillas from my favorite Mexican tortilleria at home in Imperial Beach (San Diego). But, interestingly, there's an egg in the dough.. and that's actually a Honduran "Baleada" variation. You can use oil (or possibly shortening?) in place of lard; they won't have the same authentic taste, but they're still good. I've tried making these with the KitchenAid and I've kneading them by hand.. perfect either way. I've also experimented with hand-pressing vs a tortilla press vs simply using my rolling pin. I definitely prefer the rolling pin method! If your result isn't as soft as you would like, use a little more lard on your hands when shaping the balls.
