How to make sweet potato tortillas using just 3 ingredients! These easy homemade tortillas are great for tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or just enjoying by themselves.
To cook your sweet potatoes, you can either microwave them for about 8-10 minutes until tender or you can bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour. Once cooked through, let them cool enough to touch.
Add the cooked sweet potato (skin-removed), and stir into the bowl until the flour is completely absorbed. You will have to knead it and work it in using your fingers or a spatula to combine.
Divide the dough into about 18-20 portions. (If you’re going to make larger burrito-sized tortillas, just divide into about 9-10 portions.) I use a kitchen scraper to do this, but a knife will work as well.
Sprinkle the dough balls well with flour and roll each out until they are between 1/8 and 1/16 of an inch thick using a rolling pin.
Stack each cooked tortilla and keep covered with a clean dish towel until ready to eat. The towel will hold in the steam from the cooked tortillas as they cool down, keeping them soft and flexible.
* I like using spelt flour for these homemade sweet potato tortillas, but most any flour will work for this recipe - I'd recommend trying whole wheat pastry flour or buckwheat flour if you’d like to switch it out.
