Sweet potato tortillas recipe

Yields about 12-16 tortillas


  • 1 large sweet potato, mashed (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 3-1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Heat a large griddle or a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the mashed potato, flour, olive oil, salt and cinnamon together in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Let mix until dough is soft and elastic, about 4-6 minutes.
  3. Take the dough and roll into 12-16 balls. Flatten the balls with your hands so they resemble tortillas.
  4. Place each tortilla down on the skillet and cook until it bubbles up, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes or until golden.
