How to Make Tortillas with your Thermomix

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.

  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

  4. 5 stars
    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?

  5. Oh my goodness, these are almost fool proof. Thank you so much. I will be making them using cornmeal tonight!
