Here is a recipe for fajita or soft taco wrappers. I have tried it
before and it turns out great. I don't have a cast iron skillet and
just used my fry pan.


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup hot water

1 Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Either by hand or with
a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening till the mixture is crumbly.
If the mixture looks more floury than crumbly, be sure to add just
one or two more tablespoons of shortening till it is crumbly. Add
about 3/4 cup hot water to the mixture, or just enough to make the
ingredients look moist.
2 With your hand or a large fork, knead the mixture making sure to
rub the dough against the sides of the large mixing bowl to gather
any clinging dough. If the dough still sticks to the side of the
bowl, add a couple more tablespoons of flour until the dough forms a
soft round shape. The dough is ready to roll out now, but it is best
to let it rest. Cover it with a dish towel, and let it sit for about

an hour or so.
3 Take the dough, and pull it apart into 10 to 12 balls. Lightly
flour your rolling area, and roll each ball with a rolling pin to
about 1/8 inch thickness.
4 Place each tortilla on a medium hot cast iron skillet. Cook for
about 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla does not
look doughy.
