Homemade Tortillas

4 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup lard
Hot water (up to 2 cups)
Sift flour, salt, baking powder into mixing bowl. Add lard, cut into flour mixture (like making a pie crust). Add hot water (as hot as your hands can stand it) and knead until dough forms (will be sticky). Pinch off dough to form small balls, set aside let rest 15 mins. Heat griddle while dough rests. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, cook on griddle. When bubbles stop (about 3 mins), flip, cook 3 mins more.

Can be stored in ziploc bag for several days in the refrigerator.
