2 cups bread flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup water


Place all ingredients in your machine's fully assembled pan, in the order specified by your machine's manual. Select the dough cycle and press start.

The dough should form a nice ball of dough. You may need to add a tablespoon of water or flour to get it there. When the dough cycle is finished kneading, stop the machine and remove the dough to a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in to equal size chunks (1 chunk = 1 tortilla).

On a lightly floured surface coat both sides of the ball with flour and roll out to a shape that is as round as you can get. Cook the tortilla in a heavy skillet that has a light coating of oil or pan spray. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until there are little black burnt looking spots. Remove from the skillet to a plate and cover with a towel. The tortillas should not be stiff. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Makes an ok tortilla. Something's missing from making it feel really authentic but I'm not sure what. Will experiment more. I like using my bread machine to knead the dough however.
