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.
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.
