Servings: 12 tortillas


  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into large chunks
  • 1 1/2 cup 100% whole whole flour


  • Add sweet potato chunks to a small saucepan with 1/2 inch of water. Boil over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, or until potato is soft. Remove from heat and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add sweet potato (including skin) to food processor and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. If necessary, add cooking water, 1 T at a time. 
  • Transfer pureed sweet potato to a large mixing bowl. Add whole wheat flour and stir to create a firm dough.
  • Roll dough into 1 inch balls, roll flat with a rolling pin on a surface sprinkled with whole wheat flour. Tortillas will be 6-8 inches in diameter, depending on thickness.
  • Heat a large non-stick over medium heat and cook each tortilla in heated skillet for 1 minute, flip and cook an additional minute. Serve warm. 


When cooking tortillas, I find it helpful to transfer tortillas to a clean damp kitchen towel. Folding the tortillas into the towel keeps them warm and flexible.

  • We just made these sweet potato tortillas for supper. They are a hit. It is almost impossible to make them look as good as yours. I rolled them on parchment paper but still used flour to keep them from sticking. The parchment paper allowed me to pick them up and plop them into the skillet easier. I rolled and Bill cooked. The ones we tore we ate plain. Yummy. We smeared your queso under the fajita veggies . Fun and delicious!! We will definitely do again.
