Homemade Corn Tortillas

Corn Tortillas

There is nothing better than a warm homemade corn tortilla plus it helps that they make for a naturally low FODMAP food.  I know you’re probably thinking: “no way will I try this recipe as it sounds like a pain in the ass.”   But let me stop you by saying it is actually super easy and only uses a few ingredients.  Once you see how easy homemade corn tortillas are to make, I promise you will never want to buy store bought ones again.  The store bought tortillas have a ton of preservatives and have a funky texture and aftertaste.  The lightness and airiness of the homemade version is well worth it.  I haven’t even mentioned the cost effectiveness of it!  A big package of masa is super inexpensive and lasts forever!!  You will get your money’s worth, I promise.

There are some major nutritional differences between corn and flour tortillas.  Not only are corn tortillas a FODMAP safe food but they are also full of more nutritional value such as being:

High in Calcium

High in Protein

Good Amount of B12, Magnesium, and Potassium

Low in Sodium

Also, I have found purchasing a tortilla press to be super helpful!  I have used it to help with dumplings and Pierogies.

    I haven’t seen a calorie count for your recipes. Am I just missing it? Some of us with IBS have to watch our caloric intake.
