This recipe lets you make your own tortilla’s for making wraps, burrito’s and the like. The wraps are flexible and easily baked.


These amounts produce 8 tortillas.

Ingredient Amount
Potatoes (with skins) 275g
All-purpose flour 220g


  1. If necessary, remove sprouts from the potato with a spoon.
  2. Cut the potatoes into cublets.
  3. Put the potatoes in a bowl with salted water for 30 mins.
  4. Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes.
  5. Strain the potatoes, put in a bowl and mash them thoroughly.
  6. Add the flour into the bowl and knead with your hands into a consistent dough.
  7. Form the dough into a ball and cut into 8 equal parts.

Shaping the tortillas

Tip: After making the first tortilla you can bake it while rolling the next, and so on.

  1. Prepare your worksurface by cleaning it (dry).
  2. Spread a pinch of flour to avoid the dough sticking to the surface as it is stretched out.
  3. Take a piece into your hands and flatten it into a disk.
  4. Use a rolling pin to evenly thin the dough into the tortilla shape. With the base amounts you should be able to manage a 20cm diameter.

Baking the tortillas

You bake the tortilla’s in a pan on medium fire, do not use oil as this will just soak into the tortillas. The baking time depends on a lot of things, such as the thickness of your tortilla’s. Usually you can bake them for a certain amount of time, once on each side.

Tip: If you plan to use them for dinner then stack them on a plate and cover with a dry towel of some sorts to keep the heat in the pile.
