Yes it is true. I found lard and I am in love. I am sure you are wondering how I came to fall in love with something that sounds soo disgusting. Well, it all started when I found http://thepioneerwoman.com/ She is my hero. I love her recipes, I love her stories and now I love lard.
What I think you need to do (yes I said need). Is follow this link http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/05/homemade-flour-tortillas/ and make these tortillas. I am telling you it will change your life or atleast the way you think about tortillas. I have made the recipe several times using good old Crisco but I decided to live on the wild side and buy some good old lard. I am soo glad I did. I am never buying tortillas again! Seriously they are that good. I can not stop thinking of all the delicious food I can create using these tortillas.
I am sure tonight my dreams will be full of cheeses, sauces and hearty fillings to go into these wonderous, tasty and I am sure low cal tortillas. Please try these, your family will thank you.
