The Evolution of a Recipe: Tortilla Edition


Who loves tacos? I guess the better question is, who DOESN’T love tacos? In my house we diligently guard our Taco Tuesdays (and Wednesdays, Thursdays… you get the picture). Actually, tacos and fajitas are one the top ways I utilize leftover protein. So when I realized my Whole30 was going to prevent me from enjoying my beloved corn tortillas, I went to work on a grain-free option.

Now, before the Whole30 judges come to get me, I am WELL AWARE that tortillas are SWYPO (search it); taking an item and making a paleo version of it, rather than just giving it up for a month. However, my reasons for Whole30 these days are not to identify triggers or allergies, but simply for a reset and refocus. And, so here we are!

ATTEMPT #1 Almond, Coconut + Tapioca Flours

YIKES! The theory was good, but they were very crumbly and the almond flour did not say tortilla to me.

ATTEMPT #2 Tapioca Flour + Egg

Getting Closer! The texture was almost right, but these little guys were not fold-able! They would make a better tostada.

ATTEMPT #3- THE FINAL PRODUCT!

I’m so happy with how these turned out! I decided to roll them out and use my 4″ pastry cutter to make them the perfect little tortillas for street tacos.
