20 Burrito Recipes

Easy Tortilla Recipe
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup lard or shortening {Lard is not a bad 4 letter word}
{In Mexico and many Mexican cooks only use Lard, never shorting.}
3/4 cup hot water

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Either by hand or with a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening till the mixture is crumbly. If the mixture looks more floury than crumbly, be sure to add just one or two more tablespoons of shortening till it is crumbly. Add about 3/4 cup hot water to the mixture, or just enough to make the ingredients look moist.

Knead the mixture making sure to rub the dough against the sides of the large mixing bowl to gather any clinging dough. If the dough still sticks to the side of the bowl, add a couple more tablespoons of flour until the dough forms a soft round shape. The dough is ready, let it rest. Cover it with a lightly moist dish towel, let it rest for an hour or more.
Pull the dough apart form into 10 to 12 balls. Lightly flour your rolling area, and roll each ball with a rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thickness. Grin .. for me thinner is better.

Place each tortilla on a medium hot cast iron skillet. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla does not look doughy.

Roll your Tortilla dough into 1/4 thick rounds. Cut into 4-6 wedge shaped pieces.
Heat 2 inches of oil to 375 degrees F in a heavy skillet or deep pot over medium high heat. Optional use a deep fat frier.

Fry a few of the sopapillas at a time, keeping an eye on maintaining the oil temperature. As the sopapillas puff up and rise to the surface, flip them over with a slotted spoon. Fry about 2 minutes on each side. Don’t burn your Sopapillas.

Carefully remove the sopapillas from the oil and drain on several layers of paper towels or a brown paper bag. Cool slightly.
Serve hot drizzled with honey. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar for that extra special treat.

Hint: It is easy to burn your tortillas. Reduce skillet or griddle temperature if necessary.
