Ready in 45 minutes
A quick and easy way to save a little money when on a tight budget with a lot os kids to feed.
Mix flour and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. Add shortening and mix until there are no more chunks of shortening left. Mix in cold water a little at a time until you have a some what stiff dough. Pinch off dough about the size of a golf ball, roll out flat with a rolling pin and fry in dry skillet till it bubbles, turn and fry dry about 15 - 25 seconds.
Chelsea925 1y agoThese are great. I didn't have a rolling pin so used a wine bottle with the label removed. Worked great.

Mara99 2y agoReally simple recipe, I upped the salt to 3/4tsp.
Stealie1 2y agoPretty easy to make. I had no idea. Going to try flavoring them next time.
moomasters 2y agoThis was my first time making tortillas and they were quite easy. I used butter instead of shortening and they taste pretty good. I definitely needed a bigger workspace to roll them out on because they were a little thick. A tortilla press would be ideal, but a rolling pin will do.
Chelsea925 3y agoIt was my first time makeup tortillas and they turned out great!!!!
vickyra 3y agoBrilliant, quick and delicious.
Firebyrd 3y agoMakes fantastic tortillas! I used less water than was called for per a friends' advice (and noticed a comment or two), and my trusty old tortilla press thatI inherited but never used. All in all, great recipe, thanks!
