How to make it

  • In a medium-sized, mix together all of the dry ingredients, then cut in the shortening.
  • Gradually mix in the water. Knead briefly, just until the dough is smooth.
  • Divide the dough into 10 pieces, weighing about 2 ounces each.
  • Round them into balls, flatten slightly, and allow them to rest, covered, for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat a heavy frying pan over medium heat.
  • Working with one piece of dough at a time (keep the remaining dough balls covered), roll balls out until they're about 8 inches in diameter.
  • Fry wraps in the ungreased pan for about 45 seconds on each side
  • Stack wraps on top of one another as you fry them to keep them soft
  • and pliable.
  • Store, tightly wrapped, in a plastic bag at room temperature. For storing wraps longer than a couple of days, freeze them.
