Corn-Free Paleo Tortillas

Tacos are the perfect vehicle for whatever ingredients your heart desires

Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Josh Axe

Taco Tuesday has turned into Taco Everyday, and we all know why. Tacos are the perfect vehicle for whatever ingredients and flavors your heart desires. The problem is that the actual vehicles used in taco making—the tortillas—are often full of chemicals, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, GMO ingredients, reined flours and other junk that you definitely don’t want on your plate.

These corn-free tortillas are the perfect alternative, and they’re super easy to make—even if you don’t have a tortilla press. In addition to eggs, the batter is made from coconut flour (one of my favorite gluten-free flours), and arrowroot starch. If you’ve never heard of arrowroot, don’t worry. The starchy powder that’s known to boost immunity and soothe digestion is widely available in most supermarkets. For liquid I use coconut flour, which is full of healthy fats including caprylic acid and lauric acid.

All you need to do is mix everything together, and then pour the batter into a pan. It’ll look similar to pancake batter, and all you have to do is spread it out with a large spoon or spatula to create that thin, pliable tortilla goodness. Enjoy!
