    I’m determined to save money on our food bill this year. I want to plant a veggie garden, and start baking things from scratch, and this recipe is awesome! There are so many things you can do with tortillas!
    Thanks for posting!

      You are right. There are so many things we can do with tortillas. Here in Malaysia, 8 tortillas cost almost 3$ (10 times to homemade) which I feel pretty costly as compare to homemade.

    Hello! I’ve made tortilla’s plenty of times before with various versions of recipe (mainly ones that use milk though, so I’ll try this one with water for a change), but haven’t been able to freeze them too well – do you know if this one freezes ok?
    Many thanks!

    • MyWayToCook

      I ‘ve never tried milk one, but this one I usually keep for max 4 days in my kitchen. I do not freeze them, just wrap it with plastic.

    Hello, thank you for the tortilla recipe, have been looking for this a long time, I shall have a go tomorrow and let you know how I got on. My husband just loves a bit salad, ham, and my home made chutney, and they’re full of goodness. No added nasties!

    To make them gluten free, can the flour be replaced with corn masa?

    • ila (MyWayToCook)

      I have never tried, but as long as you can roll it, should be fine.

  • Natasha Hill

    • ila (MyWayToCook)
