Homemade Tacos

Just bought a tortilla press: time to test it out!

It’s a 6 inch tortilla press.

Used a modifed version of the Robert Rodriguez recipe:


240 grams whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup warm water

Combine dry ingredients.
Cut shortening into dry ingredients.
Add warm water, stir to combine then kneed.
Cover and rest 20 minutes.

Form small balls and press. (I used ~40 gram balls.)

Fry 1 min each side in lightly greased pan.

Still tasted a little pancake-y. Not sure if I should try to press thinner (smaller balls?) or cook longer.
