6 cups All purpose flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup Vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces
2-1/2 cups Warm water
Place the flour in the bowl of a mixer. Add baking powder and salt. Mix well. Add shortening. Mix on low while slowly adding water. Mix on low for 90 seconds or until well mixed.
Scrape the dough out of the bowl and onto a floured surface. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Cover with plastic wrap, set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes. Divide each half into 8 equal portions. Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin. Roll each ball into an 8-inch round. Stack rounds on baking sheet with plastic wrap between each tortilla. Let set for 10 minutes.
To cook, fry in frying pan until lightly brown and slightly bubbly. (No butter or grease!)
