Flour tortillas are great to keep on hand. You just never know when you're gonna be in the mood for a burrito, quesadilla or flatbread pizza. Freezing flour tortillas extends their shelf life indefinitely.

How to Freeze Flour Tortillas

Step 1

Line parchment or wax paper between each tortilla to prevent them from freezing into a huge chunk.

Step 2

Place the lined tortillas into a resealable freezer bag.

Step 3

Freeze them for up to six to eight months beyond the "best by" date listed on the original package.

Step 4

To thaw, set the bag of frozen tortillas in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours, or thaw them at room temperature overnight.
