Fish tacos seem to be everywhere right now so we decided to do our own take on the recipe and use chicken instead… all from scratch! Enjoy the photos and recipes below!

 

 

 

 

 

Flour tortillas

2 cups flour
1/4 cup lard
3/4 cup warm milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Cut lard into mixed flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl or bowl for your stand mixer.
Make a well in the center and add warm milk.
Knead dough using the dough hook in your stand mixer for about four minutes, or knead by hand for about ten.
Form into 12 balls, roll out, and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
Cook on medium high heat in a cast iron or heavy pan until golden brown on both sides.
Cover with a clean cloth or paper towels until ready to serve.
