How To Make Flour Tortillas- Easy Recipe

How To Make Flour Tortillas- Easy Recipe

In this video tutorial I show you how to make authentic mexican flour tortillas. This recipe uses lard (pork fat). Lard is a kitchen staple in my house and I use it in a few different applications- cooking, baking and even soapmaking. Contrary to popular belief, lard is actually healthy and good for you! It is a very rich source of Vitamin D (a necessary fat-soluble vitamin) which is essential for all kinds of things like boosting your immune system, promoting strong teeth & bones, hormone balance, cancer prevention, etc. Humans have been consuming lard for thousands of years and it is a natural and sustainable source of a vitamin many of us are deficient in. It is estimated that 1 tablespoon of lard contains 1000 IU of Vitamin D! So, yes, we eat lard in my home.
