Soft yet sturdy, these sourdough tortillas are the perfect base for any taco. You only need five ingredients, a rolling pin, and a cast iron skillet to make these delicious flour tortillas.


  • 100 grams sourdough starter
  • 175 filtered water
  • 40 grams olive oil, extra virgin
  • 7 grams salt
  • 360 grams unbleached all-purpose


  1. Add the sourdough starter, water, oil, salt, and flour to a bowl.
  2. Knead for 2-3 minutes. The ingredients should be fully incorporated, and the dough smooth and slightly elastic.
  3. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a lid or plate, and allow it to sit at room temperature for 8 to 12  hours.
  4. The next day, divide the dough into 12 equal parts and shape it into little dough balls. Let the balls rest for 30 minutes.
  5. Roll each dough ball out to about a 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured work surface. Get them as thin as you can without tearing the dough.
  6. Cook them in a preheated, lightly greased cast iron skillet. One minute on each side should work well.
