    You ADD FAT to your tortillas, I bet your all FAT too.

    If you forget the recipe use Quaker’s Masa Trigo and add a dash of salt and
    fat into the Trigo flour. You can also add a quarter cup of whole wheat
    flour to the Trigo.

    This is STUPID! I know many Mexicans. Not one considers flour tortillas
    authentic. A real Mexican tortilla is made from corn flour, not “All
    Purpose Flour” or baking powder. THUMBS DOWN miss thing!

    The cast iron skillet can be turned upside down to make it into a Comal.
    Roll your tortilla out exactly like she demonstrates to make the circle,
    but don’t go beyond that or you will have a strange shape. The
    cooked tortillas should stand up leaning against something to allow steam
    to evaporate before laying them flat on each other in the tortilla saver.

    Walmart carries the flat black cast iron Comal skillet. In New Mexico we do
    not add margarine/butter we just use rendered pork fat or bacon grease or
    Crisco. The right hand is used to roughly cut the fat into the flour
    mixture to keep the left hand clean. If you pour hot water a little bit at
    a time with the left hand, you can use your right hand to bring the flour
    together. The dough rests covered for approx. 15 min and then rolled out.
    This recipe is also good to make non-yeast sopapillas. The rolled dough
    tortilla can be fried in oil to make the tortilla puff up into a
    sopapillas. The Guitar Center sells Clavels that are the right size and
    weight to use as a rolling pin. Two clavels in a set/2 rolling pins for a
    good cheap price. There is a simple way to tuck under the edges of the
    dough ball before rolling–so that the tortillas roll out round and not
    ragged on the edges. If you roll the dough into a ball like you would
    playdough your edges will be ragged looking and you will roll out strange
    shapes rather than perfectly round tortillas. If you roll the dough too
    thin you will have a cracker. If you make lots of tortillas it’s better to
    have 2 or 3 Comals going. Albuquerque nm

    Keep Practicing making round tortillas.
    Or you can take a round plastic container and use it as a cookie cutter
    to make a perfectly round tortilla.

    You can use regular cooking oil instead of crisco

    Really, Claudia…Yuck? What do “your” kind of Mexicans use in your
    tortillas? Olive oil?

    Not mexicans. All these foods are derived from the invading spanish. Hence
    all the spanish names in phliipines
