    Delicious and Easy Recipe for Homemade Flour Tortillas using Bisquick

    Just a few days ago, I used 2 cups of Regular Bisquick, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 2 level Tablespoons of Crisco Shortening, and close to 1 cup of Hot Water.

    First, mix dry ingredients in KitchenAid mixer ( I use standup mixer). Then add the Crisco Shortening, mixing well, then slowly add Hot Water, and mix until well mixed. Dependiing on weather, you may have to add a Tbsp. of all-purpose flour at a time, until not sticky and soft dough.
    Take out of mixing bowl, and just knead a few times on board. Then place in bowl and let rest for about 15 minutes covered with a clean dish towel. Proceed to make into small equal, slightly larger than golf size balls, cover with dish towel and proceed to roll out thinly, then cook on med./hi on cast iron griddle for about 10 seconds on each side. (Til you see little bubbles on first side. Then flip for 3rd time for a few seconds more. Place on paper toweled tortilla warmer, then cover with lid. There is no need to flour rolling pin or cutting board when rolling out dough. This dough is perfect. What I do, for cast iron griddle, is to spray Pam, then wipe with paper towel, when griddle is warm. Tortillas will not stick. When finished, place another paper towel on top of last tortilla, then place lid. To keep extra moisture from tortilla.

    I love this recipe, and just wanted to share this recipe. The tortillas are soft, beautiful, and delicious. (very pliable, too.) This recipe is too good to pass up.

    Enjoy, Cecilia (Gave some to my neighbor and she loved them.)

    I use flour, salt, warm water, shortening or lard ( lard is yummier) ..
    Or I cheat and use the ready made tortilla flour- just add hot water..

    Wow, never thought of using Bisquick.. thanks for the recipe!!

    Sadly I've only made pancakes.. What else can you make with a box of Bisquick.. ??

    I used to make mine like your recipe and using baking powder, and they too, came out delicious, but many years ago, I had heard you can make with Bisquick and flour. So, just to make it easier, I came up with this recipe. These are truly easy, delicious, and pliable. I learned to make flour tortillas as a young child from my mom and dad. Give it a try. Enjoy.

    I used to use also White Wings for flour tortillas. They also came out very good. I bought the White Wings Flour at Wal-Mart.

    Has anyone found a recipe for flour tortillas that are made without the Lard or Crisco?

    Try using White Wings at Wal-mart. White Wings Flour for homemade tortillas. They are on a different isle than regular baking isle. I think on mexican isle.

    You must continue to knead on for about 2-3 minutes on kitchenaid standup mixer. Then pull out of bowl. Just knead for a few minutes by hand. Then cover. Sorry to continue with this. Just want to be sure you get it correctly.

    I make the dumplings (recipe on box) for my beef stew. Perfect to sop up all the gravy!
    I have also tried several Bisquick recipes for muffins and coffee cake, but don't like the texture of them.

    You may use oil, margarine, or butter. I have used softened butter, lard, or Crisco shortening. My sis has used oil.

    I put about 2 cups of Bisquick in my kitchen-aid, add cooking oil a little at a time till you get little balls formed. Then I dribble it on top of my cobbler and bake. >>

    I read each and every post so far, but I got to ask, does anyone but me use Bisquick for biscuits? We like to make drop biscuits and leave them for a day to 'age' then serve them with sausage gravy over them. Yumm! Sin on a plate, but being a diabetic just means I can only have this once in a blue moon.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    Pancakes, biscuits, pour crust for chicken pot pies, waffles, lots of uses for Bisquick.
