Gluten Free Flour Tortillas!

If you have ever had the rice tortillas you can buy at the store you know they are, well, lets just say not so tasty! These flour tortillas taste great, are pliable, and the best part is they are allergen free; no gluten, dairy, soy, or eggs!  They are so simple to make, you will be wondering why you never made fresh tortillas before! 

Gluten Free Flour Tortillas
by Allergy Free and Cheap Like Me
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
Keywords: bread entree gluten-free soy-free vegan

Ingredients (12 tortillas):

1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. oil
3/4 to 1 cup hot water
splash of lime juice (optional)

How to Make It:
  • Combine all the dry ingredients and oil together.
  • Add the lime juice (if using) and hot water and beat well. Dough should be moist but not sticky.
  • Pinch off a plum sized piece and roll out very thinly on a floured board or I like to use a silpat mat. 
  • You can either shape them into a circle by hand or use a large circle cutter or bowl to cut them into a more uniform circle shape.
  • Heat up a griddle or pan until very hot.
  • Place tortillas on griddle and bake on each side until air pockets form and brown spots occur, this should take no more than 30-45 seconds on each side if your griddle is hot enough. 
  • Put the cooked tortillas between a paper towel, tea towel, or foil to let steam come into the tortillas if not serving immediately.
  • Best when cooked fresh and served warm. 
  • Enjoy!

TIP: To save time in the tortilla making process, I like to make my tortilla dough ahead of time in a big batch. I roll out and cut the tortillas into circles and place each one between foil. I then put the pre-cut, uncooked tortillas into a freezer safe container and freeze them. When I'm ready to use them I simply take out how many tortillas I need and let them unthaw. This only takes about 5 to 10 minutes since they are so thin. I then bake as directed above and serve them fresh. It is a real time saver and I always have fresh yummy tortillas on hand!
