Sourdough Tortillas



  1. Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Stir in the sourdough starter.
  3. Cut in the butter and lard until it is crumbly.
  4. Stir in the hot water and form a dough.
  5. Divide the dough into 12 round balls.
  6. Cover them with a towel and allow to rest at least 30 minutes.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough balls until they are 12 inches across.
  8. Cook for about 45 seconds per side on an ungreased cast iron skillet or griddle that was preheated over medium-low temperature.
  9. Keep warm and use immediately or rewarm in the oven with wet paper towels between every 3-4 tortillas to keep them soft.
