Ingredients

  • cups 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • teaspoons 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • teaspoons 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • tablespoons 3 tablespoons lard (you can also use vegetable shortening)

  • cups 3/4 cups warm wate

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Rub lard into flour mixture using your fingertips until mixture looks crumbly.
  • Add warm water and work dough with hands until completely combined and no dry flour is left in bowl.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 8 equal pieces; roll each piece of dough into a ball. Cover dough balls with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let rest an additional 15 minutes.
  • Preheat cast iron skillet or griddle.
  • Place one ball of dough on a lightly floured surface and pat down into a flat disc.
  • Use the Victoria tortilla press to press the dough (use plastic or parchment paper as per the tortilla press instructions). Leave the press closed for about 20 seconds.
  • Place dough in skillet and cook until bubbles form on top side and bottom side has brown spots, 30-60 seconds.
  • Flip tortilla and cook until second side develops brown spots, 30-60 seconds longer.
  • Transfer tortilla to a plate and cover with clean dish cloth.
  • Repeat with remaining balls of dough.
  • Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and wrap in a piece of foil…serve warm. (best served the day they’re made but you can freeze them and reheat them when you are ready to use them!)
