Here’s how my mom makes these flour tortillas. They are good so I thought I should share the wealth.



Cut lard into flour and salt until mixture is uniform, crumbly consistency. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until all flour is moist and mixture is easily formed into a ball. Divide ball into 12 equal pieces. Shape into balls. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes.

Roll each ball on a floured surface into a six-inch circle. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook each tortilla in the UNGREASED skillet until edges begin to dry and blisters form. Turn and cook on the other side until dry.
