Do you go through a lot of tortillas in your kitchen? Buying them in bulk at warehouse-type supermarkets can be cheaper than getting smaller packs at the grocery store.

How to Freeze Tortillas?
If you freeze the whole package as is though you end up ripping tortillas apart when you try to free up individual ones off of the frozen block.

Then put them in a ziplock bag place them in the freezer and freeze them as you normally would.
The paper makes sure that they separate easily when you need them with no ripped edges or stuck together.

Cover the top of the tortilla with another piece of paper.
Repeat the above steps, knowing that all tortillas are isolated.
Finally, pack them in a ziplock and seal them, pressing out as much air as possible, and subsequently place them in the freezer. If you can, don’t forget to label them in case you forget when they were frozen after a while.
How Long Does It Last?
If you seal and freeze the tortillas as I described for them, they generally stay fresh for 6 months or more. The prerequisite is that they are sealed well without excess moisture or other impurities.
How to Defrost Frozen Tortillas?
First, remove the desired tortillas from the refrigerator. You don’t need to take them out hours in advance as you do with frozen meat, because tortillas take very little time to defrost.
Usually, you can leave them on the counter or a plate with the paper and then go and prepare the rest of the food, and it will only take about 10 minutes for them to thaw completely.
