Homemade Tortillas

There is nothing better than having homemade tortillas. I am lucky enough to have a friend that makes them and will share lol. We actually joked about what the recipe was to make them by scratch. She told me she couldn’t even tell me because she said they just all knew it by heart and didn’t actually measure etc. Soooo, not long after that I decided to look up and see if I could find the recipe. I found one that I really liked!
3 cups all-purpose flour (I use organic from King Arthur)

2 teaspoons salt

4 to 6 tablespoons lard (Crisco)

1 1/4 cups warm water

Mix and let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Now here is the kicker…..you really need a cast iron skillet if possible (if not then a pancake griddle will work). Cook on medium to medium-high heat. I am thinking about adding different essential oils to the mix on my next batch. I think lime oil would be amazing!!
