"My sons really miss flour tortillas since we have gone gluten-free. So I have tinkered with a bunch of wheat flour tortilla recipes to create one that fits our new diet. These aren't your traditional thin tortillas (basically because I press them by hand) but a nice thick and more chewy-style that reminds me of flat bread."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

gluten-free all purpose baking flour
I added 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum to the dry ingredients, (which I add to anything calling for gluten-free flour) and they turned out fantastic. I was able to make them thin and they're flexible enough to roll into a burrito shape without cracking. A new staple recipe for my kitchen! Used Gluten-Free King Arthur Flour.
I'm stuck between Never Again! and Maybe xanthan gum, it helps the bread? Impossible to roll out, pick up, get to skillet without tearing it, rolling up the edges, etc. Total pain, and I didn't like how they taste.
This is tough to judge! Gluten free will taste different, and even cook differently. I just haven't adjusted my taste buds, though! This really has a "dry" taste to it. I could not cook this the same way I made whole wheat flour tortillas because this breaks apart if rolled out thin. If left thick, these 4" cakes couldn't be called tortillas. Either way,they fell apart when cooking! With a desire for gluten free tortilla shells, possibly substituting another kind of flour for some of the gluten free flour might help!
These tortillas turned out very well. They taste so much better than the standard store-bought flour tortillas and much lower in sodium. I did cover the pan so they would cook through, they puff up but will flatten out when cooled.
didn't work out at all.
Added 1 teas. xanthan gum(check if allergic before using) per cup of flour, to allow rolling them out. Tweaked the baking powder a bit less and the second time making these, used coconut oil in place of the shortening. I believe my third attempt to be better the last one...these tortillas are worth trying, very good flavor and texture. Will try making these with an alternative for the xanthan gum after a few more times.
This was terrible. Why wouldn't you use corn masa flour to make a traditional corn tortilla? If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Bleck.
I am new to gluten free, but these were good! The only thing I did different is to add xanthan gum. I made them more like flat bread. I loved the taste!
