Soft Corn Tortilla Pancakes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

A different way to serve tacos. Very tasty and fast to make with on hand ingredients.


  1. Combine all ingredients in bowl using a wire whisk.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium high.
  3. Lightly oil the pan.
  4. Add enough batter to make a thin pancake (I usually use a 1/2 cup measure), swirl the batter around the pan to get a uniform thickness.
  5. Brown lightly, about 2 minutes then flip and brown lightly on the reverse side.
  6. Separate pancakes with paper towels, serve warm with your favorite taco or enchilada fillings.

Wow! I've repeatedly failed at making tortillas; they always come out hard, probably because I try to cut back on the fat. These are great! After first making them as described, I experimented with making them a little healthier -- I used whole grain oat flour (ground oats) and no oil. Now I have a guilt-free tortilla recipe! Thank you!

This was a very interesting batter. I can see where you could fill it with a Mexican style filling, or more of a crepe one. I liked the pancakes best when they were thin, rather than on the thick side. Thanks for sharing!

Just what I was looking for. I hate using a rolling pin, but love fresh tortillas. Thought I was going to have to only have tortillas for special occasions. Even though they are not exact, they are still good enough. I prefer corn tortillas, BF prefers flour. Perfect compromise with this recipe. Thanks.
