Once you realise how easy it is to make tortillas you'll never want to eat store bought ones again! Once you realise how easy it is to make tortillas you'll never want to eat store bought ones again!
Number of Servings: 8


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup shortening (vegetarian suet)
    1/2 cup water, lukewarm


Combine the flour and salt, and cut in the suet with a knife until fine particles. Add the warm water gradually, and toss with fork to make a stiff dough.

Knead thoroughly on a lightly floured surface until smooth and flecked with air bubbles. Divide dough into 8 balls and roll as thinly as possible.

Place a plate on the rolled out piece of dough and use a knife to score round the plate. Add the surplus dough back with the rest.

Drop onto a very hot ungreased cast iron skillet or griddle and cook for about 30 seconds on each side. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Use at once, or wrap tightly and refrigerated or frozen.

Number of Servings: 8

    This is like the recipe I got when I was 18 years old, I'm now late 50 something. I never knew they were vegan! And my carnivore DH loves them? Thanks for the post. I can be vegan and have my tortillas too. ;-) - 4/20/12
