One of the very first recipes I ever made in my Thermomix were these super easy homemade Tortillas.  I used to make them pretty regularly in my pre Thermomix days, but it’s one of those recipes which has been made so much easier.

We use these Tortillas in so many ways, filling them with everything from salads and cold meats, to being used as a light pizza base to filling them with chilli con carne – you could even fill them with Lucy’s yummy Chicken Parma Bites!

I always seem to have a little helper hanging around when it comes time to roll these, and this is a pretty robust recipe if you decide to get the kids involved.

Tips for Making Tortillas in Your Thermomix:

  • Your dough will be sticky, use some of extra flour to cover your bench and also your rolling pin to help you roll out the tortillas.
  • It is normal for the tortillas to spring back a little after you roll them.
  • You can use regular plain flour or wholemeal flour for this recipe if you wish – you may need to add a little extra water if using wholemeal flour.
  • These tortillas can be frozen once cooked.
  • To store, place into an airtight container and eat with two – three days.
  • You can make your Tortillas larger or smaller, the cooking time will vary.

  1. I love that you can make these with plain flour, I’ve been making some of my own but with bakers flour and they’re a tad unwieldy. Shop bought ones have so many added nasties, it’s much more fun to make your own. I can’t wait to try these next time we have Mexican on the menu!

  2. Love this recipe Lauren! I made chilli con carne last night just so I could make some of your tortillas to go with it!

      Thanks Tamara! Yes they sure do keep for the next day. I normally cover mine with a tea towel and store in a cool dark place. However with the humid temperature we’ve been having here in QLD lately, I’ve started to keep them in the fridge xx

  3. I made some modifications based on another online recipe but used your technique with my TM5. Worked like a charm, so thank you!

    For 8 medium tortillas, I used:

    – 250g flour
    – 1/2 tsp salt
    – 1/2 tsp baking powder
    – 35 g oil
    – 120 g warm water

    These are so great and so easy I’ve made them three times now! Just wondering do you know how many calories each tortilla has?

  6. Fab recipe …just finished eating half the dough made into tortillas . I’ve. Seen comments about putting tortillas in fridge up to a week. How about keeping the dough in there ? How long would the dough keep please ? Thanks

  7. Hi! Thanks for the recipe, I made them yesterday and they’re really easy and good. Are they supposed to be hard after cooking them or rather soft and flexible? Mine were hard, maybe because of the flour of the working area or because of too much cooking? Thanks!

  8. 5 stars
    Great easy recipe. A hit with the entire family. Be great to add some spinach and garlic. Will make these instead of buying.
