Reader question: Where, oh where, can I find flour tortillas made with lard?

Reader question: Where, oh where, can I find flour tortillas made with lard?

A reader shot us an e-mail earlier today, posing a food-related question to "Ask a Mexican" columnist Gustavo Arellano:

I absolutely love flour tortillas made with lard, but I have not been able to find a place that sells them in Denver. Everyone seems to think that vegetable shortening will do just fine, thank you very much, but they are mistaken! A few years ago I asked the Westword food writer if he knew where to find them, and he said sorry, he didn't know. Can they be found in Denver? I live downtown, but I would gladly drive great distances to get my hands on a stack of delicious, giant, magical tortillas. Please tell me I don't have to drive to Phoenix to get them!

Thank you for your help, Madly-in-Love Tortilla Lover

We unleashed the question into the Twittersphere and received a few tweets in return, suggesting that Madly-in-Love Tortilla Lover check out the following:
