Heat cast iron pan on stove at medium to high temp. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt well. Add crisco and blend until flour looks like it has small peas. Make a well in the middle of flour, add water and bring flour mixture into center until all flour is incorporated. Knead dough (masa) and add extra flour to keep from being sticky. tear masa into equal sized pieces. Roll out with rolling pin until they are larger than corn tortilla size. place into skillet(NO OIL) until you see bubbles, about 30 seconds, turn and cook on other side.
