Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add vegetable shortening or lard. Use a fork or a pastry cutter to cut in the
shortening. The old fashioned way is to use your hands.

Next add warm water a little at a time until dough is soft and not sticky.
Do not use very hot water.

Knead the dough lighty.

Pull off pieces of dough to form
12 small balls. Let them rest for 5 minutes.

This is a good time to pre heat the
comal or cast iron griddle. You will want
to set it at a medium heat.

Now you can roll out the dough with your tortilla rolling pin or palote. It is a
good idea to dust each ball with a little flour. Lay the
palote in the center of
the dough ball and roll up, back to center and roll down. Lift the dough and
give it a quarter turn. Roll out rather thin. Lay onto the hot comal for a few
seconds. Flip over to other side. You should have some nice brown specks.

You can place in a kitchen towel or a
tortilla warmer. They are ready to eat.
Serve with your meal. Delicious buttered and with a favorite jam or honey!
