Homemade Tortilla

My 1st time ever making tortilla, and it was not hard at all!

I served the tortilla with taco beef and sambal (Indonesian hot sauce) hahaha And I must say, it was not bad at all 😉 East Meets Latino? 😉

2 c flour

salt to taste (or garlic salt for more flavorful tortilla)

1/2 c shortening (use golden shortening for buttery flavor)

1/2 c lukewarm water (or just enough)

Directions!

Mix flour and salt, add in shortening and mix with fork until coarse, make a well, then pour in 1/2 cup lukewarm water, work your dough, if it’s needed, add more lukewarm water. Let dough rest for 15-20 minutes.

Flour very lightly your working board, divide dough into 8-12 equal portions of balls, then flat each of them fairly thin.

Heat your griddle or non-stick pan, fry without oil.

NOTE:

The water is actually only as much as needed to hold the dough together.

Do watch out for the heat so you won’t burn your tortilla.
