2 cups flour, white
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup water, hot


Mix flour and salt together. Cut in shortening until crumbly and then mix in the water. Roll out ping pong size balls on a well floured surface and cook in nonstick pan on medium heat. When tortilla starts to bubble up turn over immediately and be ready to take it out as it only needs about 20 seconds on the other side.

Note: Do not overcook, they are meant to be soft and bendable.
