I made tortillas a week or two ago. They were gross! So the hunt began for a good tortilla recipe. Today Matt felt the 'itch' that accompanies his inspirations and the result was THE perfect tortilla recipe. Seriously. the. perfect. tortilla. I could eat these things all day long.
Matt's Tortillas serves 8
2 C flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 3 T lard 3/4 C warm milk
Combine dry ingredients. Cut in the lard until well combined- like pie crust. Add the milk. Mix with your hands. Knead for a few minutes. Cover with damp towel and wait for 1/2 hour. Roll out into 8 balls and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out and cook on a hot griddle or cast iron skillet.
