Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
31/2 cups flour
1/2 cup shortening or 1/2 Crisco stick (preferred white Crisco-not lard).
2 teaspoons salt,
1 teaspoon baking powder,
1 cup warm milk (lukewarm, not hot milk, or you will cook the flour and it won't turn out good).

Directions:
Directions:
Put flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together. Then add the shortening and mix again till everything looks like small peas. Then add the milk. I use my KitchenAid Mixer and I use the hook, and once you use that you will never use anything else. After it's all mixed together wait at least 30 minutes to let the dough rise and cover it up and then make your little masa (dough) balls.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Note from Mrs. Valdez: She makes the balls and puts them in a plastic bag. Then she refrigerates them. She only uses the balls she is going to need for a serving. For example: for 3 people she makes 7-8 tortillas and only takes out enough masa balls to make that many tortillas. This way, you will have fresh tortillas every time you need them. Enjoy!
