3) Slowly pour in warm water and knead the mixture into a soft dough. Make sure the dough is not sticky.
4) Continue to knead the dough out of the bowl on a flat surface for about 10 minutes.
5) Add a little lard on top of the dough, cover with a towel and keep aside to rest for about 5 minutes.
6) Divide the tortilla dough into 24 small golf ball sized rounds.
7) Pat each ball with your palm slightly, place a dot of lard on top, cover with a small waxed paper, allowing them to rest for about 30 minutes.
8) On a floured flat surface, roll out the tortillas into thin, saucer-size rounds.
9) On an ungreased, hot comal or flat grill bake the rolled out tortillas.
10) Cook the underside till the surface starts forming little bubbles. Immediately, flip the tortilla over and finishing cooking.

11) Serve hot tortillas with a dollop of butter and even with cheese.
