Sourdough Tortillas


Who doesn’t love burritos? Quesadillas? Or a simple rolled up warmed tortilla with butter slathered in the middle? These tortillas are so delicious, you will wonder how you ever survived without them.

Here is the recipe I have adapted from several different online sources, and I think gives the best flavor, holds together very well, and freezes/thaws perfectly.

Sourdough Tortillas


3/4 cup sourdough starter

2 to 2 1/2 cups white wheat flour

3 rounded Tbsp bacon grease (you can use coconut oil but bacon grease tastes SO much better!)

1 tsp REAL salt

1/2 cup milk


Combine all ingredients using your kitchen aid mixer (or hand-held mixer, but why?) for 3 minutes

Set in a mixing bowl with a towel or plastic wrap covering the top. Let sit 8-12 hours or overnight (make sure the bowl is large enough for the mixture to expand, otherwise it will overflow)

Dust clean counter and hands with flour and divide into 8-10 balls, depending on how large you like your tortillas

Roll out your dough balls until they are fairly thin but will not break when you pick them up

Transfer rolled tortillas into a pre-heated skillet, set on medium heat. DO NOT PUT ANYTHING IN THE PAN! You will not need any non stick or oil in the pan, just use it dry

Let the tortillas cook for 30-45 seconds and then flip with a spatula to cook on the other side until lightly browned, 20-30 seconds

Transfer cooked tortilla to a plate and proceed with the next one

If you want to freeze extra tortillas, simply place a sheet of parchment paper in between each one and freeze in large, freezer, zip lock bags.
