Spelt Tortillas Recipe


Our family has probably eaten thousands of these spelt tortillas over the years.  They are great plain, cooked in oil in the frying pan, as a thin pizza crust, as quesadillas, toasted with cinnamon & sugar, as a sandwich wrap, and for all the regular Mexican dishes.  They have very few ingredients and my children LOVE to help making them.

    Super excited to try this recipe. I have had VERY LITTLE success with making tortillas thus far…How many balls? What size ball? What size tortilla does this make? I am going to try this recipe for tacos for 6 ladies and I would like to know how many tortillas this makes? Thanks, Kristi

      I usually make it in to 8 balls so just take the whole ball and break it in to 8 pieces and you’ll know the size.

    Thank you so much for the spelt tortilla recipe. Made them tonight and they are both easy and tasty! And, I hope I win the deep blue essential oil too!!!! My husband has cronic back, knee and ankle pain and would love to see if it would help him any. =)

      Spelt is a type of flour that a lot of people with a wheat allergy can eat. You can cook with it just like wheat flour. If you look on the post, there is a link to make it easy for you to buy it on Amazon. You could always just use this recipe with regular flour too and it will turn out great.
