  • In food processor, pulse flour, shortening and salt until shortening is incorporated.
  • With food processor running, gradually pour in water and mix until dough starts to form a ball.
  • Knead dough for 4-6 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. It should feel like playdough.
  • Cover dough and let rest for at lest 20 minutes. This will make it easier to roll out
  • Divide dough into 8 portions.
  • Pre-shape dough into a disk shape with hands, then on a floured counter, roll out into a 6-8 inch round. Keep remaining dough covered to keep from drying out.
  • Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat until smoking. Then wipe the oil out with a paper towel.
  • Add one tortilla and cook until you start to see bubbles forming on top, about 1 minute.
  • Flip and cook until brown spots begin to form on 2nd side, about 1 minute.
  • Keep tortillas warm by placing the covered, in the oven on low heat while you cook remaining tortillas.
