Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour, plus additional as needed

2 teaspoons baking powder 

1 1/2 teaspoons salt 

2 tablespoons lard, plus additional as needed 

Directions

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a stand mixer and stir to combine. Turn mixer on low speed and add lard; beat until combined. Add 1/2 cup water and stir until combined. Be careful not to overwork dough, to ensure tortillas come out flakey.
  2. Pull dough out of mixer and place on a clean, workable surface, dusting with extra flour. Manually work dough into a ball, then weigh out 1/2-ounce portions.
  3. Roll out dough balls with a rolling pin into 4-inch circles to make thin tortillas.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan over low heat with 1 teaspoon lard just until melted. Add 1 tortilla and cook slowly until lightly brown, then flip over with tongs and cook other side. Continue cooking tortillas, adding lard as needed.
