Lunch Menu Monday - Homemade Tortillas With "Bean Dip"

We had burritos a couple of days ago. So, I was using up leftovers. I mixed together the rest of the beans with some scoops of sour cream, the rest of the shredded cheddar cheese and some spoon fulls of taco sauce. Then, I heated it all up together in the microwave, stirred and put on a plate with a homemade tortilla...and sliced apples. 

Tortilla Ingredients:
2 cups
All-purpose flour (I use 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup wheat flour to make up the total amount of flour)
½ t.
½ t.
Baking powder
2 T.
2 T.
¾ cup
Warm water

Tortilla Directions:
Mix flour, salt, baking powder, lard and butter. Add little water at a time. It shouldn’t be too sticky or too dry. Knead for 2 minutes. Break into 8 to 10 golf ball size balls. Set a warm damp cloth over balls for 20 minutes. Flatten balls first with hands, then roll with rolling pin. Set a pan to medium-high heat and wait until warm. Cook on one side for 8 seconds. Turn and cook for about 1 minute. Flip and cook for another minute.
