The first time I made this, it turned out horrible. Too salty, and I didn't let it rest. Not letting the dough rest is NOT an option!! Wait at least an hour, then it'll be the right consistency. Otherwise you'll have a lump of greasy dough that refuses to be rolled out. Once the dough has rested, roll out into very thin tortillas the size of the pan you'll be using. Fold a kitchen towel in half and stack the cooked tortillas inside it. This will keep them pliable and soft. Once you're done either eat right away or store in the fridge. Since the tortillas get hard in the fridge, heat gently in the pan just until soft again. It's important to use VERY hot water for the dough as well. Making a perfect tortilla takes practice, so be patient! This is a great authentic recipe and as far as the salt goes, I use 1 tsp, but that's just personal preference.
