Add all the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder and salt to a large bowl.
Add the shortening and cut it in with a pastry blender until blended well.
Then you slowly add the warm water to the mix, tossing and blending with your hands just until it forms a ball. If necessary, add more water one tablespoon at a time.
Now cover it and let it set for 15 minutes then divide into equal portions and roll into balls, 8 for large tortillas or 12 for small tortillas.
On a floured surface roll the dough out with a rolling pin.
Tortillas cook up fast, all that is needed is an ungreased pan over medium high heat, and cook for 30 seconds on both sides.
Store these in the refrigerator or freezer for up to a month. Place sheets of wax paper between the tortillas to prevent them from sticking together and thaw them completely before cooking.
