I use Bob’s Red Mill Cassava Flour to make these tortillas. Are you new to cassava flour? Cassava is a starchy root vegetable that in my opinion is underused in our country.

The starch in cassava make it a great carbohydrate option for those who don’t eat grains or legumes (hint: if you follow an AIP or paleo diet or are doing a Whole30), and also make it ideal for baking, as it holds together much better than some of the grain-free flours out there.

How to Make Cassava Flour Tortillas:

Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl.

Cassava flour tortillas in the making

Stir well until everything is well combined and a dough forms. Form the dough into a ball. Allow the dough to sit at room temperature (or transfer to the refrigerator) for at least 1 hour. Place the ball of dough on a cutting board that is dusted with cassava flour.

Flatten the tortilla dough into a disc.

Cut into 8 to 10 sections (note: for thinner tortillas, go with 10..for thicker, naan-like flatbread, go with 6 to 8).

Roll each section out into a circle.

Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium-low and spray with cooking oil.

Transfer one disc of dough to the skillet and cook until it begins to puff up and bubble, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip to the other side and continue cooking another minute or two.

Repeat for remaining dough.

Use tortillas for tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, wraps, etc!

Tips:

  • Don’t skip the part where you allow the dough to sit in a ball at room temp for 1 hour – it becomes easier to manipulate and cracks less after it sits. While the tortillas can certainly be made without allowing the dough to sit, the process goes easier when you perform this step.
  • If tortillas harden or become stale after you make them, simply zap them in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds in a moistened paper towel to bring them back to life.
