From Scratch Tortillas


So, I did it.  One day a while back I needed tortillas and I didn't want to run to the store.  I made them from scratch.  And these are my families ultimate favorite tortillas.  The kids get so excited when I make them for supper!  They are simple to put together and taste outstanding!

Flour Tortillas
4c. flour
2tsp. salt
1/2c. shortening
1 1/2c. warm water (add more if dough is dry)

Mix flour and salt.  Cut in shortening.  Add warm water and kneed dough.
Split into 12 balls.
Let rest for 15 minutes.
Roll out thin.
Cook on skillet (high heat) until golden spots appear.
Flip over, cook until golden spots appear on side two.
Eat.
