Instructions
 

Homemade Bisquick Tortillas

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine four cups of Bisquick with two tablespoons of lard. Mix with your fingers or a fork.
  • Add one and one-half cups of water and mix until the dough forms a ball.
  • Place on a lightly Bisquick floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  • Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the balls into a thin, round circle.
  • Place in the hot skillet, and cook until golden. Flip and continue cooking until golden on both sides. Place the cooked tortilla on a plate and set it in the oven on warm heat until ready to use. Continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.

Chicken Tortilla Filling

  • Brown two pounds of lean ground chicken with two cups of chopped onions in a skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Add layers of black beans and the chicken mixture.
  • Repeat with two more layers of cream cheese, Bisquick tortillas, black beans, and chicken mixture.
  • Add final flour tortilla and a generous even spread of salsa. Sprinkle with the grated cheese.
