Sourdough tortillas are one of the easiest recipes you can make and once you try them you won't go back to regular store bought again! I like to long ferment my dough but you can also do a quick recipe that's ready to cook tortillas in just 30 minutes! Let's get started!
1/2C sourdough starter discard
1/4C olive oil or avocado oil
1 2/3C all purpose flour
1.) Combine wet ingedients together and then add dry ingredients.
2.) Mix together until and smooth ball forms. 3.) Knead a few times to bring the dough together and get a smooth moist dough ball. The dough should not be sticky, it should be easy to work with in your hands. Don't overwork the dough.
4.) Once complete let dough rest for 30 minutes covered with a damp tea towel or plastic wrap.
At this point you can let the dough ferment for 8+ hours or go ahead and use it right away.
5.) Divide dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each into a small ball.
6.) Heat a skillet over medium heat.
7.) Roll tortillas out into thin flat discs. They should be almost see through.
8.) Place into hot skillet (no oil needed) for about 1 minute on each side or until the outside gets a few nice brown charred spots on it. It works best if you roll out and cook one at a time.
You can eat right away, refrigerate for 3-5 days, or freeze for several months. When freezing make sure to layer pieces of parchment in between each tortilla.
