Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Bisquick baking mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • ¼ cup vegetable shortening

Instructions

  1. Sift together all your dry ingredients -- all-purpose flour, Bisquick baking mix, and salt -- into a large bowl.

  2. Add in your wet ingredients -- water and vegetable shortening -- into the mix.

  3. Whisk the ingredients together until you form a pliable dough.

  4. Scatter a bit of flour onto your cutting board so that the dough doesn't stick on it. Pour the dough onto the cutting board and cover your hands with a bit of flour. Then knead the dough for 10 minutes. Afterward, divide the dough into as many portions as you wish.

  5. Once you're done kneading, take out your rolling pin and start rolling out your dough portions onto a thin sheet. Make sure to apply flour to your rolling pin as well to keep it from sticking.

  6. Using a cookie cutter, cut circular shapes into the dough portions.

  7. Heat up your cast iron frying pan and cook the dough portions until they show a brown color. Once you're finished, serve them along with some yummy Mexican dishes. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Tortillas are called thin flatbreads or small cakes that served up in various ways and in different dishes. Our simple recipe includes Bisquick baking mix, which makes it easier for you to do. However, if you want to try making it from scratch, you can try substituting all-purpose flour with cornflour or wheat flour depending on your desired taste and texture. 

You can even choose how thin or thick you want your tortillas to be. If you're eyeing for thin pieces, then they're perfect for quesadillas and tacos. For burritos, you can make it a bit thicker than usual.
