Prepare your tortilla-making equipment by laying out a large mixing bowl, cutting knife, cast-iron or nonstick skillet, and tortilla press (I love mine from
Mix the masa and salt in the mixing bowl, then add the lard and mix to combine.
Pour the hot water over to melt the lard, then mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Abandon the spoon and mix with your hands until it forms a really smooth dough.
Use your hands to press the dough into a rectangle, wrap it in plastic wrap, then leave to rest for 30 minutes. This makes the tortillas softer and more flexible.
After 30 minutes of rest, set your skillet over medium heat and line your tortilla press (top and bottom) with parchment paper.
Cut the tortilla dough into16 equal-sized pieces and place them one at a time into the center of the tortilla press.
Press the lid of the tortilla press down firmly, flattening the dough into a paper-thin circle.
Carefully peel the first tortilla off the parchment paper and place it onto the hot, dry skillet.
Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until the tortilla is starting to brown.
Move the first tortilla to a ‘holding plate’ and cover with a towel to keep it warm while you repeat the pressing and cooking for the rest of the dough.
