Sourdough and More
So I hear you want to learn how to make Sourdough Tortillas! Crafting anything with Sourdough is well worth the wait, and these tortillas will change Taco Tuesday forever. Let's get started!
Make sure your Sourdough Starter is fed and active prior to starting
Use a Bosch or Kitchenaid Stand Mixer to make the dough making process easier
Allow your dough to rest and rise for at least 2 hours
Roll your dough out as thin as possible prior to cooking the tortillas. Or, you can use a tortilla press.
Use a Cast Iron Skillet to cook your tortillas for the perfect exterior texture.
To ensure tender and light tortillas, you'll want to make sure your starter is active and bubbly. If it's not, feed it prior to starting the recipe, let the starter ferment for 30+ minutes, and then begin the tortilla dough process.
Use a Bosch Mixer (or Kitchenaid Stand Mixer) to make the dough process easier. Using a dough hook while mixing will take away the need to knead by hand, too.
Allow the Sourdough Tortilla dough to rest for 2+ hours (the longer the better). This helps reduce the gluten within the dough and develop that tender tortilla texture.
Using a rolling pin, roll the tortilla dough balls out as thin as possible (or use a tortilla press).
Use a Cast Iron Skillet to cook the Sourdough Tortillas. Cooking in a Cast Iron Skillet will create a perfect exterior crust on the tortillas.
