Here’s How To Make Delicious Gluten-Free Tortillas at Home

Are you ready to learn how to make easy and delicious gluten-free tortillas? You’re going to love this homemade recipe! It’s perfect for tacos, burritos, wraps, or as a side dish to any of your favorite dishes. Plus, it’s dairy-free and vegan-friendly.

Step One: Mixing the Ingredients

First, in a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together – 2 cups of Gluten-Free Flour Blend containing ¾ cup Tapioca Flour, ¾ cup Potato Starch or Cornstarch, plus ½ chickpea flour or brown rice flour. Add gluten-free baking powder (1 tbsp), xanthan gum (1 tsp), [guar gum (optional), ¼ tsp sea salt.

Take another bowl or jug and mix the wet ingredients in it – 3/4 cup hot water + 3 tablespoons coconut butter together until completely blended.

Step Two: Combining Dry and Wet Mixture

Then knead the dough by slowly adding wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix well with hands or mixer. The consistency should be like Playdough.

Divide into equal-sized dough balls then cover with a towel for up to several hours or overnight.

Step Three: Rolling and Pan-frying the Dough

Set a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Take a piece of parchment paper and place the dough ball between it then sprinkle some tapioca starch/flour over rolled parchment top. Roll out each ball on parchment paper as thin as you can get it. Roll from center outwards.

Then flip the tortilla by lifting off the parchment paper and gently toss onto pan surface. Tilt pan slightly back-and-forth so oil moves around until edges appear cooked through =whitish see-through spots on edges). This will take about 30 seconds to cook.

Flip the tortilla and cook until the other side is golden brown, for an additional 15-20 seconds. Repeat this process for all tortillas.

Step Four: Serve and Enjoy

Transfer cooked tortillas to plate with paper towels lining it. Roll up your tortillas into a soft taco, burrito or enjoy as part of your favorite dish.

Now you’re ready to savor every delightful bite of these homemade, gluten-free tortillas!

Step Five: Cleaning Up

Don’t forget to clean up after making these delicious gluten-free tortillas. It’s as simple as washing your mixing bowls, rolling pin, and skillet with warm water and soap.

Variety is the spice of life, and this gluten-free tortilla recipe is no exception! Here are some simple substitutions and variations you can try to put your own spin on the recipe:

– Flour Blend: If you don’t have a premade gluten-free flour blend, you can mix your own by combining 1 cup of tapioca flour, 2 cups of potato starch or cornstarch, and 1 cup of chickpea flour. This blend will work just as well as any store-bought one.

– Xanthan Gum: If you don’t have any xanthan gum on hand (which helps bind gluten-free flours together), you can substitute for guar gum or psyllium husk. Use the same amount called for in the recipe.

– Cassava Flour: This flour is similar in texture to wheat flour and makes great tortillas. If you don’t have any on hand, alternatives include brown rice flour or almond flour.

– Soft Taco Flour: If you prefer softer tortillas, swap out cassava flour for soft taco flour from King Arthur Flour or a similar brand.

– Dairy-Free: To make the recipe dairy-free, simply use coconut butter instead of regular butter or shortening.

– Paleo: Swap out the gluten-free baking powder for 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to make this already dairy-free dish Paleo-friendly.

Remember, when making substitutions or variations, the outcome may be different than expected. Play around with it until it pleases your taste buds!

Now that you have mastered the art of making gluten-free tortillas, it’s time to talk about make-ahead tips and storing options that will help you save time and make your life easier.

If you are planning to use the tortillas within a day or two of making them, simply keep them covered in a kitchen towel or plastic wrap at room temperature. They should stay fresh for up to 2 days. However, if you want to store them for longer periods of time, there are some great options available.

One option is to store the tortillas in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. To reheat them, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave them for 10-15 seconds or until warm.

Another option is to freeze the tortillas for later use. To freeze gluten-free tortillas, place them individually in a ziplock bag or plastic wrap and then put these bags into an airtight container or heavy-duty freezer bag. They will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.

When it comes to reheating frozen tortillas, let them thaw first and then reheat them using your preferred method. You can reheat them in the microwave wrapped in damp paper towels as mentioned above or heat tortillas directly on the stovetop over low-medium heat until they are warmed through and pliable.

In conclusion, with these make-ahead tips and storing options, you can now easily enjoy gluten-free tortillas anytime without worrying about freshness or time constraints. Make sure you plan ahead and stock up on these delicious wraps so you can be confident that they’ll always be ready when you need them!

Now that you have the gluten-free tortilla recipe, here are some tips to help you achieve the perfect results every time.

1. Don’t skip the xanthan/guar gum: These ingredients help to bind the flour and prevent the tortillas from crumbling apart. If you don’t have them on hand, psyllium husk can also work as a substitute.

2. Use hot water: Using hot water will help activate the xanthan/guar gum, making it easier to form dough.

3. Rest the dough: After mixing the dough, let it rest for 10-15 minutes. This will allow the starches to absorb the liquid and make it easier to handle.

4. Roll out evenly: Make sure to roll out the dough evenly, not too thick or too thin. Aim for around 1/8 inch thickness.

5. Cook over medium-high heat: Preheat your skillet or griddle before cooking on medium-high heat. If your heat is too low, the tortillas won’t get that signature golden brown color and may become tough.

6. Press down with a spatula: Once you place your tortilla in the skillet or griddle, press down lightly with a spatula to maximize contact between the tortilla and cooking surface.

7. Keep them warm: If not serving immediately, wrap cooked tortillas in foil or a clean kitchen towel to keep them warm and soft.

Follow these tips and you’ll be able to make delicious gluten-free tortillas that taste even better than store-bought ones!
