Gluten Free Soft Tortilla Shells

  • Ingredients: 2 cups King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour
    2 teaspoons Xanthan gum or Guar gum
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup warm water
  • Instructions:

    1) Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.

    2) Pour in the cup of warm water to the bowl and mix the dry ingredients into the water with your hands until its an even mixture.

    3) Separate the dough into 8 pieces (we did 4 pieces for larger burrito shells) and roll each piece into a ball. Place all but one of the dough balls back into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap until you're ready to work with them.



    4) Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with a bit of flour. Then using a rolling pin, roll your dough ball into a roughly circular shape and get it as thin as possible. Trim off the outside edges with a paring knife if you prefer a more even edge.

    5) Throw the tortilla onto a hot pan (make sure the bottom is about the size of the shell) with a little bit of olive oil. Let the shell cook approximately 1 to 2 minutes, or until it has started puffing up and the bottom side is developing those lovely brown spots. Flip the tortilla and cook the other side until it is toasty as well; another 1 to 2 minutes.



    6) Slide the cooked tortilla from the pan and onto a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat the rolling and cooking process until you've cooked all 8 medium tortillas (or 4 large tortillas). It worked nicely to roll one tortilla out while another is cooking, so that there is always a tortilla on the pan.

    Serve the tortillas warm with your favorite filling!
