Divide the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Working with 1 portion of dough at a time, place it on a lightly floured surface, pat it out into a 4-inch circle using your hands, and then roll it with a palote or rolling pin, from the center out and rotating it 1/4 turn each time you roll, until the tortilla is thin and about 8 inches in diameter. Keep the rolled-out tortillas covered, side by side, until you’re ready to cook.
