How to freeze tortillas:

To freeze store bought tortillas, place the tortillas in the freezer in their original packaging.

If you are going to have them in the freezer for longer than 6 months, we recommend remove the stacks of tortillas from the original package and place them in a freezer bag.

Then get as much of the excess air as possible out of the freezer bag to prevent freezer burn.
