How to make Sonora Style Flour Tortillas:
Step NO 1
In the following image you can see the ingredients that we will need to prepare these delicious Sonora style flour tortillas.
Step NO 2
We are going to start the recipe by mixing the flour with the salt and shortening in a deep bowl , and beat until its texture is lumpy. It is very important to use this type of butter, 100% vegetable, and not substitute it for butter or butter of animal origin, since the result could vary. Likewise, in this way the Sonora-style flour tortillas are suitable for both those who follow a vegan diet and those who do not.
Step NO 3
Once we have the lumpy texture, we carefully add the hot water , which should be as hot as your hands can handle without burning you. We are adding the water little by little until we obtain a dough that does not stick in the hands or in the bowl.
Step NO 4
Now that we have the dough for the Mexican flour tortillas ready, we cut pieces and form balls the size of a large lemon.
Step NO 5
Once the balls are ready, we take each one of them and with the help of a rolling pin, we crush them on a flat surface, which must be a little floured so that the dough does not stick.
Step NO 6
Once all the flour tortillas have been formed by hand, we take them to the hot griddle and let them cook for 10 seconds on each side.
Step NO 7
And ready! Our rich Sonora style flour tortillas are prepared to be filled with your favorite stew. If you follow a vegan diet, you can opt for tacos de nopales (using a vegan cheese), and if you are one of those who eat meat, tacos al pastor are ideal.
