CATEGORIES
Ingredients
  • 2 cups corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lard
  • 1 1/2 cups water
Directions

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and lard. Mix well. Stir in the water. **The dough should be slightly wet. Form the dough into a smooth ball. Divide the dough into 12 pieces. Place a little water on the hands and form the dough into small balls. Place the balls on a piece of parchment paper (12 inches by 8 1/2 inches). Using your hands, flatten the dough and form into a flat circle. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the circle. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a 6 1/2 to 7 inch circle and 1/8 inch thick. In a medium non-stick skillet, over medium heat, brown the tortillas for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Remove and place between two sheets of parchment paper. Repeat the above process with the remaining dough. Serve warm.
