I'm wondering if anyone has a recipe for gluten-free (and non-gmo if corn) tortillas or if you know of any company that sells them.

I don't have a gluten allergy but choose to eat gluten free as often as I can. I bought brown rice tortillas and I was surprised I wasn't crazy about the taste (as I love brown rice pasta). They also weren't very pliable so to make a burrito was difficult, it "cracked" everywhere.

I use google all the time for recipes but this is a bit out of my wheelhouse so I was hoping for someone to suggest something they've already tried and have been successful. So at least I can ask questions if need be.

No such thing as a gluten-free flour tortilla. You can probably eat corn tortillas. It's possible to purchase extra large corn tortillas that are big enough for a small burrito.

You can not make corn tortillas at home without buying masa harina. Corn tortillas are made with limed corn. Although if you are really determined, I suppose you could learn how to lime corn and turn it into masa. It's a lot of work.

As to where to buy GMO free masa or tortillas, I've never seen any. But I haven't really been looking for them.

I tried using Vietnamese spring roll wrappers to make burritos. Don't bother. They are like trying to chew bubble gum and don't make a very good burrito.

Thanks for taking the time to post. I know (or, at least as I understand) that oat flour does not contain gluten (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) but wasn't sure if it could be used to make a tortilla. And if you could, if it would even taste ok.

As far as making corn tortillas, that sounds way too much effort (thanks for explaining). I cook alot but it's more on the creative side and not so much "baking" so that would be a big fail if I were to try, lol.

I had to chuckle on the spring rolls. That's something I probably would've tried at some point!

Anyway, I wonder if I moisten the brown rice tortillas first, if that would soften them up...

Any tortilla will become pliable if you get it warm.

Just put the tortilla in the microwave for about 10 seconds and then make your burrito.

Or, if no microwave, put in a warm DRY fry pan for a few seconds and flip once.

Can warm them in the oven, but it's really a waste of oven heat for the short amount of time needed.
