Tortillas – Fresh and Easy and So Very Good

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for fresh corn tortillas. Why? Because Enchiladas are next on the menu.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of corn flour
  • 2 teaspoons of  lard
  • 1-1/2 cups of water
  • 1 tsp salt

In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt and lard and mix well. Stir in the water and begin mixing the ingredients. You want to form a smooth dough ball. Depending on the size you want your tortillas you want to divide the ball (usually 8-12 pieces). You want the dough to be a little wet. Form the pieces into little balls and place them on large piece of parchment paper. Flatten the dough balls into thin circles with your hands. Place more paper or plastic wrap over the flatten pieces. Using a rolling pin flatten the dough into about 7 inch circles. They should be about 1/8 inch thick. In a medium non-stick skillet on medium heat, brown the tortillas for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Remove and place between sheets of parchment paper. Repeat the process.
