These tortillas tastes very similar to flour tortillas with a hint of a taste of potatoes coming right out of the camp fire (yam!), it also has no oil in it!

You can basically use it to create your favorite wrap with it or use in any burrito or fajita.

Ingredients:

5 medium potatoes peeled and quartered

1 cup of potato starch

1 tsp salt

Optional: granulated garlic, paprika, dry herbs etc (to create flavored tortillas

Directions:

1. Put the potatoes in a pot, fill with water and bring to boil.

2. cook for about 15 minutes, until soft (a fork can get easily inside), drain the water using a sieve to capture the boiled potatoes. let it cool for about 10 minutes.

3. Take a large bowl and add 1 cup of potato starch, salt, spices (if you chose to flavor it) and the potatoes.

4.   Create a dough, kneading it for about 5 minutes, until the mix is unified and not crumbly.

5. Create small balls, about the size of a tennis ball (2″).

6. Sprinkle a bit of potato starch on a cutting board. Flatten the dough, first by hand and then using a rolling pin to about 1mm-2mm (less than 1/10th of an inch), about the thickness of tortilla 🙂 If you don’t flatten it thin enough, the center of the tortilla will turn to be gooey (yuk).

7. Take a nonstick pan and put it on the stove using a medium heat. After about 2 minutes, when the pan is hot enough, add the tortilla, and press it with a flexible turner to the pan

8. When bubbles starting to form, flip the tortilla and press it again against the pan. You should be aiming for creating a pocket of air between the two sides of the tortilla

Pressing the areas on the tortilla that did not fill with air will usually help creating this pocket all through (however, it is not mandatory)

9. Repeat the process with all of your dough.  This recipe will yield about 10-15 medium tortillas – good enough for 4 people’s dinner.
