    About this recipe: This homemade flour tortilla recipe produces warm and soft tortillas perfect for tacos or burritos.

    Serves: 24 

    • 500g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 tablespoons (about 25g) lard
    • 355ml water

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Whisk the flour, salt and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in the lard with your fingers until the flour resembles breadcrumbs. Add the water and mix until the dough comes together; place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
    2. Preheat a large pan over medium-high heat. Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla. Place into the hot pan and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side. Keep the cooked tortillas warm; continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.
