Corn Tortillas

Submitted by: BUDGETMOM

Introduction

Makes 10 tortillas - freeze the extras or could cut recipe in half Makes 10 tortillas - freeze the extras or could cut recipe in half
Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    3/4 cups cornmeal
    3/4 cups AP flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    •1 teaspoon salt
    •1 tablespoon spectrum shortening
    •1 cup boiling water
    •Waxed paper

Directions

In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour and salt. Stir it up while the water is coming to a boil. Use a metal measuring cup to measure the water, if possible. Plastic melts, and glass sometimes shatters, so a metal measuring cup is the safest type when you measure boiling water. To continue, place the shortening in the bowl with the cornmeal and flour. Pour the boiling water over everything and stir it up with a fork. Stir and stir because it will lump up quite a bit before it turns into dough. Allow the mixture to cool. Divide the dough into 10 lumps about the size of golf balls. Roll each ball out very thinly between sheets of waxed paper. Loosen and remove the top sheet of paper, and lay the tortilla down on a hot dry skillet, with the bottom sheet of waxed paper still attached, and now on top. After the tortilla cooks for a few seconds, the remaining sheet of waxed paper will easily loosen for removal. When the underside of the tortilla is dry with a few brown spots, turn it and cook the other side.

I usually roll out two tortillas at a time, and continue rolling as the prepared ones cook. This recipe makes 10 corn tortillas.
