Feliz Cinco de mayo!
I just love that picture. So colorful and beautiful.. I am making some soft tacos and noticed I only had a couple tortillas left... could I make these??? I thought I look for a recipe....
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup hot water
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry cutter or with two forks, cut in the shortening till the mixture is crumbly.
Add just enough hot water to the mixture to make the ingredients look moist.
Cover and let sit for a hour or so.
Roll into 10 or 12 balls. roll this balls out to 1/8 inch thickness.
Cook in a medium hot skillet or griddle. Cook for around one to two minutes until the tortilla is not longer wet looking.
