Whole Wheat Tortillas (BIG batch)

Whole wheat tortillas are a healthy, yet delicious alternative to bread, or even flour tortillas when you are looking for healthy living. These wheat tortillas can be used for so many different food recipes that you will want to make them in bulk and freeze them so they are always available in a pinch. This is a large batch because I have alot of mouths to feed, but equally, I like to keep them in the freezer so I can thaw just a few at a time, any time.


  • 6 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 9 tablespoons butter or shortening
  • 2 1/4 cups water (you may or may not need it all)


Combine first 3 ingredients completely.

Using your fingers, work butter/shortening into flour until its evenly dispersed and crumb like.

Pour water in and mix until a ball of dough is formed. Add the water slowly becaue you may not need all of it. Your dough should not be sticky at all and should be a fairly firm ball of dough.

Lightly flour your work surface and knead the dough 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

Let rest covered with plastic wrap for 20 minutes.

Divide dough into 24 - 48 equal pieces. The size of my reference for small is using a 2 inch ball of dough.

Cover them while you work so they don't dry out.

Roll one piece at a time into a thin 8 inch circle disk, and set aside.

The thinner they are, the better they turn out!
