Do you ever see those recipes that advise people to use "fat free tortillas?" I've never seen them in the stores, ever. So this is a great way to enjoy tortillas without the fat and cholesterol. I often make a bunch and then cut some of them up for tortilla chips and then freeze the rest of them.

Directions

  1. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well. Add fat-free mayonnaise and use pastry blender (or fork) and blend until flour mixture appears to be coarse throughout.
  2. Add hot water and stir well. Knead in extra flour. Cover and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Set iron griddle over medium to medium-high heat. Tear off a piece of dough, roll into a ball (approximately 2 1/2-inches).
  4. On well-floured board, roll dough out into a circular flat form as thin as possible (less than 1/8-inch thickness) approximately 6 inches in diameter. Add more flour if dough is sticky.
  5. Place tortilla on heated griddle and allow it to bubble slightly. Heat for approximately 1-2 minutes.
  6. Flip tortilla and brown other side approximately 1 minute longer. If tortilla has browned in variable spots and does not have a dough-like texture, then it is done.

Thank you for this. My gf is on a fat free diet (liver issue) and have been looking for ways to make/convert over to suit her restricted diet. :)

Bravo! I just used low-fat mayo and it was DIVINE! Thanks for posting -- this is bound to become a staple at my house.

Delicious! Very simple and quick. I used wheat flour for rolling out the dough and it gave the tortilla a nice organic taste. I cooked some eggs chopped some veggies and added turkey bacon, for a raw wrap, then cooked on my griddle.
