All I can say is WOW! This recipe turned out WONDERFUL! The only recipe that isn't my own is the four tortilla recipe. Its a little early for supper, but I went ahead and made everything so I just have to pop it in the oven. Had a little taste though, I wouldn't post it without tasting it! lol
4 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbs. lard
1 1/2 c. luke warm water
Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk. Mix in lard with hands until it resembles cornmeal. Slowly add water. Lightly flour flat surface and rolling pin. Divide dough into 24 balls...let sit for at least 10 minutes. Roll each one out until quite thin and round. Heat Skillet on med-high heat. Flip every ten seconds until golden bubbles on both sides. Unless using all at once, you want to put them into a large Ziploc bag while still warm so they stay moist. You can freeze, or store them at room temp for about a week.

All of these separate are not that bad, but put them all together for one meal and it is a lot more calories, carbs, and sodium that I eat on a daily basis. So if you are trying to lose weight, I would use this meal as your "cheat day". And it is worth it!
