Tortilla Shells

These taste much better than store bought ones! Thank you to Tricia for the recipe!

5 cups of flour
1/2 cup cup shortening
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups boiling water

Stir flour and salt together, then cut in the shortening
Make well pour in water kneed until smooth and not sticky (I waited for the water to cool a little so that I would not burn my hands)
roll in to 10 to 12 balls, cover in saran wrap let them sit from 1-8 hours
put cooking spray or butter in pan.
put in first tortilla for 20 to 30 seconds then on second side about 10 seconds
for the rest put on each side about 10 seconds a side)
