Instructions
  1. For the bacon fat, you can either fry up some bacon or if you keep bacon fat in the fridge, use that when it is softened up.
  2. Add to a small sauce pan, the oil, 3/4 cup of milk, and the bacon fat, heat on medium low to just bring the mixture to a simmer, do not let it boil. Once at a simmer, remove from heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, and baking powder and whisk together. Make a well in the center and pour in the heated milk mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of milk, and using your hands, mix until a rough dough forms.
  4. Lightly flour your work surface and turn out dough onto that. Knead dough for about 4 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it rest on the counter for 1 hour.
  5. When 1 hour has passed, unwrap the dough and cut into 16 even pieces and form each into a ball about 1 1/2 inches diameter. Cover with a kitchen towel.
  6. Take one ball and on your floured work surface, roll it out to a 6 inch round. Place that under the towel and repeat the steps for the remaining balls.
  7. Once all the tortillas are rolled out, heat a cast iron pan on medium low to medium heat, add a tortilla and cook for about 2 minutes, you want some brown spots to form on the bottom and air bubbles form on the surface, poke the large bubbles with a fork. Flip and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and stack under the towel, repeat for remaining tortillas.
  8. Fill with your favorite taco fillings and enjoy.
