Fat Free Flour Tortilla

"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."

Ready In:
1hr 30mins
12 tortillas




  • 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.
  • Add hot water and stir well. Knead in extra flour. Cover and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Set iron griddle over medium to medium-high heat. Tear off a piece of dough, roll into a ball (approximately 2 1/2-inches).
  • 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.
  • Place tortilla on heated griddle and allow it to bubble slightly. Heat for approximately 1-2 minutes.
  • 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.

  1. 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. :)
  2. Bravo! I just used low-fat mayo and it was DIVINE! Thanks for posting -- this is bound to become a staple at my house.
  3. 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.
  4. Yum! These were such a treat! BF and I used these to make quesadillas using some leftover chicken. Tasted better than our local Mexican restaurant! The only downfall to this recipe is that it's rather labor-intensive. (BF still can't quite understand why I didn't buy torillas at the grocery store, since it took me the better part of an hour to complete these.) All in all, these tortillas were a fabulous treat, but definitely not something I'll attempt to do on a busy weeknight. Next time I'll do as Katie suggested and make them ahead and freeze them! Thanks for the fabulous recipe, Katie!


i love cooking healthy. i have a major problem with ibs and the thing that triggers it is large amounts of fat so i can only have chicken breast, and fish except for bass, mackerel, or salmon. i love working out and horse back riding and i am always looking for "fat free" recipes. i love too cook as well.
