Home Made Spelt Tortillas

Jo Zimny


I read the labels on what I buy in the grocery store and I didn't much care for all the "extra" things I found in the packaged tortillas so I decided to make an executive decision and make my own. Now I'm so glad I did.

How to Make Home Made Spelt Tortillas


  • 1Heat up your cast iron fry pan or tortilla grill on high heat. The grill has to be very hot.
    Mix all the ingredients together well.
  • 2Cover in a bowl, let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  • 3Remove from the bowl and form into 8 equal sized balls. Let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  • 4When time is up remove one ball at a time and roll out in a thin circle.
  • 5Put the rolled out tortilla on the grill and heat until you see bubbles on top of the tortilla. Check underneath to make sure it's not burning.
  • 6You should see little dark bubbles under the cooking tortilla, flip it over and cook for another 35-45 seconds or if smoke appears.
  • 7Repeat with each tortilla. Store them in a plastic bag wrapped in a moist paper towel. These will dry out if not kept moist.
  • 8Refrigerate in the bag with the moist paper towels until you are ready to serve. You can freeze these but remove the paper towel if you do.
  • 9When you serve these, top with whatever you enjoy on a tortilla, roll up and enjoy.
