Flour Tortillas-sodium free (low sodium opt)

Lynn Socko Recipe

By Lynn Socko lynnsocko

14 approx. 8" tortillas
15 Min

I looked at dozens of recipes and put together a very basic, simple recipe that met my needs. You can add 1/4 tsp. of salt for a approx. 23 mg. of sodium tortilla, or 1/2 tsp of salt for approx. a 53 mg. sodium tortilla. You can use a Bread Machine or Stand Mixer to do the mixing and kneading for you!!!

Be sure to keep cooked tortilla's refrigerated if not eaten within a day or two since there are no preservatives.


3 c
all purpose flour
1 c
warm water
1/2 c
olive oil or vegetable oil
1/4-1/2 tsp
lite sea salt, opt
2 Tbsp
mrs. dash southwest and chipotle seasoning

Directions Step-By-Step

STAND MIXER METHOD: Add flour, seasoning if desired, water and oil. Using a dough hook, set on stir and let the dough mix. Scrape the sides of bowl after a few minutes. Let the machine work the dough for about 7-8 min. Add more flour as dough is working if it is sticking to sides or bottom of mixing bowl.
BREAD MACHINE METHOD: Place water and oil in bread pan, then salt if desired, then flour. Place on Dough Only cycle and let your machine do the work.
Once mixing and kneading is complete, divide dough into small portions (I made 14 out of mine and they made 6-8" tortillas). Form into a ball, roll out on floured surface as thin as possible.
Brown in very hot cast iron skillet or on comal or griddle. Cook on each side just a few seconds till browning begins.

only problem they are high in sodium, it's a catch 22 for me. I have some now, but can't eat them often, or more than one, they are almost 400 mg sodium for one tortilla. So many I can make a low sodium low carb tortilla??? Time will tell, lol
