  • 3 cups flour (choose unbleached bread flour or white wheat, or any combination of the two)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp soaking medium (apple cider vinegar whey, or lemon juice would work well)
  • 1 cup slightly warm filtered water (minus 3 Tbsp if using soaking method)
  • 5 tablespoons of lard or coconut oil (learn how to make your own lard)
  • 14 equal pieces, rolling each into a ball. Allow the dough to rest for at least 10 minutes, or up to 2 hours Working with one ball at a time, dust your working surface, the ball and your rolling pin (I used a glass jar) with flour. Roll the ball into either a 6″ circle, a shape that is about 1/8″ thick, or any combination of the two (I’m notorious for triangle shaped dough!). Rotate and flip the dough as necessary to prevent sticking. You may also use a tortilla press if you have one.
  • 30 seconds Flip the tortilla over and cook for another 15 to 30 seconds Repeat with the remaining balls of dough. Stack the cooked tortillas and wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Serve warm.
