Description: A low carb variety to those you find in a authintic Tex-Mex resturante! Just like Abuela (Grandma) used to make. :o)



Ingredients: 1 Cup low carb bake mix (or Atkins, we found one at Wal-mart that has 0 net carbs per serving)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup lard chilled (we used Crisco)
3/4 cup warm water
1-2 tbsp. olive or veggie oil
How To Prepare: Mix the bake mix, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Add the lard (crisco) and mix with your fingers until you have it completly crumbled in.
Slowly add the warm water and stir with a large spoon. Take out and put on a "floured" (bake mix) on a smooth surface and knead for 3-5 mins. Place 1-2 tbsp oil in a large plastic bag, place dough in bag and let sit in a warm place for an hour. Pinch off golf ball size pieces, let rest another 15 mins. Roll out the balls until resemble tortillas (about 7 inches in diamater). Cook on a HOT skillet or Comal, turning only once. Place inside a tortilla warmer, in a bowl lined with a clean dish cloth or between two towels. Any left overs can be stored in a plastic bag when cooled.
Yields 9-10 tortillas.
Carbs per serving - include all nutritional information if known: 3 carb total.
Effort (Easy, Average, Difficult): Average

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Very fillig
Cons: a bit dry

I think this recipe calls for too much water and salt. Here is the updated link that the author quotes so you can see what i mean: http://www.texmextogo.com/flour_tortilla_recipe.htm I followed the recipe but I oly used only a 1/4 Cup of water, even less water would have been better, I think. I used a home made baking mix which already has salt, maybe I should not have added any.
