Tortillas

6-CUPS OF FLOUR
2-TEASPOONS BAKING POWDER
3-TEASPOONS SHORTENING
3-TEASPOONS SALT
3 TO 3 1/4 CUPS OF WARM TO HOT WATER

Mix dry ingredients and shortening together. Add in water slowly and mix until the dough feels elastic. Sometimes dough won’t need all the water so add slowly until your dough rolls and doesn’t stick to your hands. Let dough sit for 15 to 30 minutes covered with a bowl or towel. Cut out desired sized balls and begin rolling out with your tortilla rolling pin. Cook in ungreased skillet over medium heat about 1 1/2 minutes per side or until lightly brown.
