1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup of warm water

Directions:
Directions:
Place flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine. Add shortening. Pulse again, 5 or 6 times, to mix evenly. Pour warm water into food tube and pulse until mixture just forms a ball. Divide dough into 12 egg-size balls by taking some of the dough in your hand, making a fist and squeezing a ball out between your thumb and index finger. Lightly grease hands with shortening and roll each ball of dough between your hands to lightly coat it. Place balls on a baking sheet and cover with a clean tea towel to rest for 15 to 30 minutes. Roll each ball with a rolling pin on a lightly floured work surface into a thin 7 to 8 inch circle. Pull or gently stretch circles slightly if necessary. Cook tortillas on a hot, ungreased griddle until brown speckles appear on the undersides. When air bubbles form on top, press down lightly with a metal spatula to flatten. Flip tortillas over and cook on other side about 30 seconds. Placed finished tortillas between the folds of a tea towel.
