Homemade Organic Whole Wheat Tortilla Mix

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 5 cups organic unbleached white flour
  • 5 cups organic whole wheat flour
  • 5 tsp. Real Salt
  • 5 tsp. Homemade Baking Powder
  • 1/3 cup home rendered lard

Here’s How I do it:

  1. In a very large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder.
  2. Cut in the lard until mixture resembles cornmeal.
  3. Store in a covered air-tight container at room temperature for up to six weeks.  Freeze this mix If you intend to keep the mix longer than six weeks.

To make tortillas:

  • 2-1/2 cups tortilla mix
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup warm water (110° Fahrenheit)

Here’s  How I do it:

  1. Add 1/2 cup warm water and mix until dough can be gathered into a ball.  (If needed, add more water, 1 Tbsp. at a time.)
  2. Let dough rest 15 minutes, covered with a clean kitchen towel.
  3. Divide dough into 12 portions.
  4. Shape each portion into a ball.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, flatten each ball with a small luncheon plate.
  6. Roll each flattened ball into a 7-inch round.
  7. Trim uneven edges to make round tortillas, if necessary.
  8. Cook in an ungreased skillet over medium-high heat until each tortilla is lightly browned on both sides.
  9. Yields 12 tortillas.
  10. Enjoy!
