  1. In a  bowl, whisk together  flour, 1 tsp. salt, and baking powder until combined. Using your hands combine shortening with flour mixture until it is the consistency of corn meal. Using a faucet, bring water to warm and slowly mix in with the flour mixture. Mix until the dough all comes together.

  4. On a floured surface, take each dough ball and flatten out with a well floured rolling pin, should be paper thin. Transfer to hot skillet and cook until slightly browned, will bubble. Flip and cook both sides Approx. 30-45 seconds per side.
  5. Keep in a warmed tortilla container or warm plate. Until ready to use as tortilla or to begin making chips.

  7. On a cutting board, use a pastry brush to lightly brush oil onto each tortilla, stacking as you go. Once you have about 10 stacked, using a sharp knife, cut through the tortillas making 4 cuts to make 8 even chips.
  8. On a large baking sheet, arrange cut tortilla chips in a single layer. Season with salt. Bake for 11-13 minutes until they begin to turn golden brown on the edges. Let cool and repeat for remaining tortillas.
