OK ladies, here goes...I did not intentionally want to sub ingredients, but I did not have shortening, lard, or even margarine or butter! I really wanted to make these so I subbed what I had on hand....COCONUT OIL! I did put in the freezer to harden for a bit so it would not be soft or oily. It took just a little more mixing with my fingers to break it down, but my husband who is (very) Mexican could not tell the difference. There really was no difference in taste and I actually liked the taste better. The only thing I would do next time is add just a tad more salt. My tortillas were soft, pliable and easy to handle. I did use 1/2 CUP of the coconut oil because that is usually what I add when I have made tortillas before. I also sprinkle flour on my acrylic cutting board where I make tortillas so they will not stick. This is THE BEST recipe for homemade flour tortillas that I have found and better than my previous recipe. I will be making this recipe again and again (with my coconut oil sub I believe). Thanks LaDonna!
