World Taco Day Flour Tortillas and we enjoyed and had a fiesta.

Oct 4th = National Taco Day

Tacos are the Mexican equivalent of a sandwich. Instead of bread, a hard or soft tortilla is wrapped or folded around a spicy filling. But, also, in essence, these little folded pockets of goodness are so much more than just a sandwich!


A tortilla is a thin, circular unleavened flatbread originally made from maize hominy meal, and now also from wheat flour. The Aztecs and other Nahuatl speakers called tortillas tlaxcalli. First made by the indigenous peoples of Mesoamerica before colonization, tortillas are a cornerstone of Mesoamerican cuisine.

Units Scale


  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  2. Rub in the lard till it resembles fine sand.
  3. Make a well in the center and pour in the water.
  4. Mix to bring the dough together.
  5. The dough should be sticky to the touch.
  6. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface (add extra flour if too sticky to handle) and knead to form a smooth soft dough.
  7. Cover and allow it to rest for 30-40 minutes then divide into equal-sized balls, roll out, and cook on a hot non-stick pan.
  8. Keep the cooked tortillas covered with a dry tea towel to prevent them from drying out.
  9. Enjoy!!
