There are a lot of people who have never tried freezing corn tortillas. It can be difficult to get the hang of it, but once you do, your life will be so much easier! Here’s how to freeze and refrigerate tortillas for later use:
Wrap each tortilla in plastic wrap or place in a zip top baggie
Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Once they are all laid out, put the pan into the freezer and allow them to freeze for 2 hours
Remove them from the freezer and allow them to thaw on a plate in your fridge
Place back into the plastic wrap or zip top baggie for storage
Keep refrigerated until ready for use. They should last up to two weeks!
If you want to keep your frozen food in the best condition, it’s important to wrap them tightly.
You can either use plastic wraps or zip top baggies for this task—either way will work. But be sure that they are completely sealed before freezing so no water gets on the outside of the tortilla and freezes with it! This could lead to a soggy, unusable product.
Place each wrapped tortilla onto parchment paper covered baking sheet and then transfer into freezer until hard as ice – usually about two hours is sufficient time. Freezing any longer may result in condensation when removed from freezer which would ruin thawed product by making it soggy.
Once frozen, store in freezer’s coldest section or until ready for use.
Corn tortillas can be kept in the fridge—in a zip top bag to avoid any water from getting on them and freezing with it!
You may also want to keep your corn tortilla wrapped tightly so that they don’t dry out while refrigerating. If you plan to eat all of your tortillas within two weeks, storing them at room temperature is okay too!
To thaw pesto: remove from fridge about 30 minutes before using and allow time to come close to room temperature; if needed microwave briefly (still keeping covered) – NEVER put into hot oven since this will overcook and dry out tortillas
Corn can be microwaved on high for 45 seconds as well if you need a quick fix without the mess of heating up the entire oven…
Corn tortillas are a great staple for any meal but it’s important to know the best way to store them so they don’t go bad! If you want your tacos ready on demand then freezing is an option!
In order to preserve their freshness between uses after being cooked in oven or microwave (and this includes both raw dough and already baked), make sure that:
They cool completely before storing away; · Wrap tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. It’s also possible to place a damp paper towel on top of the tortilla before wrapping it up;
Store in a dark place that can maintain the temperature (i.e., avoid storing anywhere near appliances or windows); · Don’t stack them if you want to keep your tortillas fresh for longer!

For freezing pieces of corn tortilla dough (for use as wraps), wrap them individually in oil or plastic wrap; store them flat on cookie sheets in the refrigerator until firm, then transfer into zippered bags labeled by type of dough: flour/corn/flour & corn combo. This way you can thaw out just one package at time if needed without having it all defrost together as a tangled mess.
To freeze corn tortillas in a package of six, place them individually on a baking sheet and put it into the freezer for about an hour to ensure they are completely frozen. Once the tortillas have been totally frozen you can remove them from the pan and stack them together with wax paper separating each one. Then wrap tightly with plastic or aluminum foil then seal inside a zippered bag labeled by type of dough: flour/corn/flour & corn combo
To thaw out just one at time, take out of fridge until soft enough to cut open before heating up in microwave oven according to directions on package instructions for 20 seconds (or less) per side – or until heated through if microwaving more than one tortilla
To heat up more than one, place on a plate or in microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap, then cook for 20 seconds per tortilla at a time

If you want your frozen tortilla to have a similar consistency to fresh ones then either roll them out on a very lightly floured surface before assembling into a flat disk shape- gently stretch with hands if needed – or if you want to make a more authentic corn tortilla then freeze the dough balls and flatten them out after they are frozen.
Corn Tortillas can be stored in the freezer for up to six months, but we recommend rotating through your stock every three months so that all of your other veggies don’t get freezer burn! If freezing at home, always cover with wax paper before wrapping tightly with plastic wrap; this will help prevent drying while also keeping any sharp edges from tearing into the product. We do not recommend microwaving a frozen tortilla as it can cause uneven cooking and lead to an unpleasant texture when eaten. The best way to thaw is by defrosting on counter top overnight or warming in oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for five minutes.
