1. Whisk dry ingredients and seasonings (if you are using this option)
2. Stir the oil into the water, add if dry mixture and check consistency; you want the dough moist but not sticky
3. Knead it a bit to blend it together and prepare it to roll into a ball (you may have to add a bit more flour or water; play with it until you find the right consistency)
4. Roll into a ball about the size of a lime (about 1.5-2 inches diameter, I used an ice cream scooper) and roll it around in your hands until it’s in a non-sticky form
5. Place between two 1 ft pieces or parchment paper and roll out into a flat circle about 1/8th inch thick. The edges will be uneven unless you use a large circular cookie cutter like I did with these. The dough should be about 5-6” inches across. A tortilla press is handy here.
6. Put a ts or so of oil before each tortilla in a small shallow frying pan or crepe pan (I used a basting brush) and cook for 30-40 seconds on eat side
7. Make sure each side is nicely browned and cooked fully; it will bubble up a little and look a bit dry and golden browned like a regular conventional tortilla.

    For plante.. the dough is still sticky. I do add some extra tapioca flour in the mix. i also put tapioca flour on my hands and roll the balls of dough and let them set for a few minutes. I will pat them out a bit and put them on the skillet..and using my fingers squash them out a bit more. after they cook on that side, i flip them and use my spatuala to make them a little thinner. they are more like gordito tortillas. as they are no bigger then six-eight inches, we pile the meat or egg or veggies on top of it and eat with a fork. very much worth the time and effort.

    “Ingestion of small amounts of cream of tartar may cause mild to moderate nausea. Toxicity (stomach cramping, dizziness, difficulty breathing) may occur if larger amounts are ingested or inhaled.” I doubt that this ingredient is necessary, so I would recommend leaving it out. I have also heard that it can cause heart damage.

    mfahlsing, Cream of tarter is in almost every cookie/pastry you have eaten prior to Paleo.

    Anyone know the nutrition on these? i.e. calories, fat, carbs, per shell?

    These are the best! So versatile and they are mildly flavored so they taste like what you put in them.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these!!! I did cut the water back by 1/4c. Melted the oil for 30 seconds and also added 1/4 tsp xanthum gum. Mixed in the food processor using the dough setting. Not sticky at all. They folded up nicely for soft flour tortillas. I am soooo happy to have tortillas in my life again!!! Thank you!!!
