* Note: For filling use any of the following: pico de gallo (a traditional Mexican salsa of tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro); guacamole; chopped tomatoes; sliced jalapenos; sliced scallions; chopped fresh herbs, such as basil; and grated cheeses. For Flour Tortillas: Combine flour salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Cut in vegetable shortening using a pastry blender. Keep blending until consistency resembles that of oatmeal. Add warm water, and work dough into a ball with fingers. Knead for about 5 minutes on a floured board. Cover for 30 minutes. Cut the dough into 8 or 16 equal pieces with a knife or pastry cutter. Roll each piece into a ball, and let sit for 45 minutes. On a floured surface, roll out each ball to the desired 9- or 7-inch diameter. Stack tortillas on top of one another with a layer of parchment paper between each. Cover with a damp cloth to prevent them from drying out. Cook tortillas in a nonstick pan over medium heat until light-golden brown; after two minutes, as they begin to bubble, press gently with a spatula. Turn over, and repeat on the other side. Stack between layers of parchment, and cover with a damp cloth. Makes eight 9-inch or sixteen 7-inch tortillas. For Quesadillas: Place a tortilla on a flat work surface, and sprinkle with fillings; top with a second tortilla. Quesadillas can be assembled through this step a few hours before serving. Cook over low heat in a heated, nonstick pan until the cheese has melted. Slide onto a round cutting board or plate; turn cutting board over, and return quesadilla to pan, uncooked-side down. Remove quesadilla from pan when both sides are golden brown. Cut into an equal number of wedges with kitchen scissors. Garnish with guacamole and a touch of sour cream. Serve immediately. Makes four 9-inch or eight 7-inch quesadillas.
