Default Tortillas

I don't really make these all that often as the convenience of buying mass produced. But it don't hurt to roll a few dozen out every once in awhile.

4 cups flour
4 T lard
3 T sugar
3 t baking powder
1 1/4 t salt
1 1/2 cup of milk

Use your mixer to mix the ingredients on low until the mixture is no longer dry. Switch to the dough hook and run for about 10 minutes. Kneed for a few minutes and let dough rest for about an hour. Roll into little balls and kneed each one a little. Roll out to 1/8 inch thick circles. The roundness takes practice.
Heat cast iron up and place tortillas on it to toast each side.

It's very convenient to buy them at the store no doubt. But in no way do they compare to homemade. They look awesome.

This is the stuff I have always used. Pretty sure you can find it in just about any market.

I'll have to try this recipe. If we are in the mood for "homemade" tortillas I usually just buy the mix from Wally World. It comes in a bag like flour and all you add is water. It's pretty darn good and super easy to make.

I like the use of the stand mixer. I don't think I've ever done that. I need to try these...

I've not made my tortillas with sugar, but some fresh tortillas off of the comal, with some butter, sugar, and cinnamon rolled up was my favorite treat from my grandma. I'll have to try adding a little sugar next time. Did you notice any consistency differences with using a stand mixer? I've only mixed by hand.

They came out really well! ! more tip: If you place hem on top of a naked flame it will give them a little more color and flavour

If you mix them by hand they will come out lighter. Some times you can over mix them when using a mixer. The more mixing and kneeding you do the denser they become.

Cant comment on using the mixes mentioned above as I always make mine from scratch. I would list my recipe but I don't measure anything. But I use Flour, Baking Powder, Salt, Lard, and Hot Water.

I was born and raised in Brownsvile. We always had a live in housekeeper/cook. She made fresh tortillas for every meal. The closest ones I can find are the HEB homestyle.
