Mix the first 3 ingredients add lard and incorporate well add water little by little to form a nice dough.
Knead 5 to 10 minutes make large balls I made 8 and let rest 15 minutes covered. Roll out thick and cook on a medium high heat in a comal.
Let cool a bit and slice the top of the gordita to form a pocket. Fill with your favorite fillings.
