Tortilla Mexican Soup Recipe

Mexican Tortilla Stack-Ups

Mexican Tortillas

  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil or lard
  • 2 pounds flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Heat the water, baking powder, vegetable oil or lard, and salt until it's hot, but just not too hot, just hot enough so that you can touch the water and not be burned.
In a large bowl, pour in the water mixture and add the flour a little-bit at a time until you are finished with the remaining flour. Make sure to mix the water mixture and flour together well.
You should have a smooth and elastic dough. Do not use a machine to mix the dough (use your hands).
After mixing the ingredients, cover the dough and refrigerate for about 15 minutes. (This will make the dough easier to work with).
Then take out the dough and heat up a "comal", or if you don't have one, simply use a pan. A cast iron skillet works well.
While the pan is heating up, start rolling the tortillas. Sprinkle a small amount of flour on the rolling surface so that the tortillas won't stick.

After they are made, start cooking them. When done, keep them warm in foil paper, or like it's done in Mexico, with a soft towel. And the Mexican food recipe of Tortillas is ready to serve...great taste ! Enjoy it !
