A little piece of Heaven....Homemade Flour Tortillas

Don't forget to enter my giveaway going now through December 3rd.  Please leave a comment for each thing you do so I can give you points accordingly!

I'm a New Mexico girl as you all know and I love myself some tortillas. Quesadillas, Breakfast Burritos, Green Chile Beef and Potato Burritos or just plain tortillas.... we eat a lot of these in our family!  I have had trouble finding tortillas that are actually made by hand. I was looking at recipe after recipe and they all said mix with food processor, blender, etc. I wanted a fall back, go to recipe that I could use if we didn't have plugged in appliances. Thanks to LaDonna on I have a recipe that I love and can make with my very own two hands. I only had to change 1 ingredient amount.

Printable Recipe
Homemade Flour Tortillas
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 45 Minutes

4 c all purpose flour                              2 ½ T THRIVE shortening, prepared (or lard)
1 t salt                                                  1 ½ c water
2 t baking powder

1.Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Mix in shortening with your fingers until the flour resembles cornmeal. Add the water and mix until the dough comes together.
2. Place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few minutes until smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
3. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Use a well-floured rolling pin to roll a dough ball into a thin, round tortilla. Place into the hot skillet, and cook until bubbly and golden; flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side. Place the cooked tortilla in a tortilla warmer; continue rolling and cooking remaining dough.

For an easy treat spread a little bit of butter on a hot fresh tortilla and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar.  Yummy!
