The kids love flour tortillas, they're simple, taste good and have a ton of uses. Anyone ever make any?

I've made them a bunch, we used to do it when we craved Mexican food when I lived in a part of the world where it wasn't available:

2 cups flour
1/4 crisco
2/3 cup warm water
1/2 tsp salt

Mix all together until the dough forms a ball and comes out of the hands easy.

Shape into balls and put in the fridge for 15 minutes, covered with plastic.

Press with a tortilla press and cook on a griddle.

Cast iron tortilla presses are available at lots of supermercados, but I really love my teflon/electric one because it presses and cooks in one step and you don't have to use plastic over the cast iron.
