Sourdough Tortillas Recipe

Revamp your taco night with these homemade sourdough tortillas, boasting a delightful blend of softness and chewiness. Utilizing your sourdough discard, they’re not only easy to whip up but also a game-changer for your culinary endeavors.


  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 2 minutes
  • Resting Time: 1 hour


  • ¾ cup (180 g) water
  • ½ cup (125 g) sourdough starter discard
  • 3 cups + 2 tablespoons (375 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons (7 g) of high-quality sea salt
  • One tsp baking powder
  • 30 grammes or two tablespoons of coconut oil (or olive oil)


  1. Combine water and sourdough starter discard in a small bowl, set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing basin, mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Using your hands, work the coconut oil into the flour mixture until it becomes a fine, sandy texture.
  3. Pour the water/sourdough starter mixture into the dry ingredients, combine until no dry bits remain. After 30 minutes, cover and let rest.
  4. Divide the dough into 16 pieces, roll each into a ball. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, cover with a towel, and let the dough relax for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. Roll each dough ball into a thin round (about 6″ diameter), using flour to prevent sticking as needed.
  6. Cook the rolled dough on the hot skillet until bubbles form on top and the bottom is slightly charred. Cook, flipping once, until thoroughly done.
  7. Proceed with the leftover dough balls, ensuring that the cooked tortillas are kept warm until serving time by covering them with a kitchen towel.


  1. This recipe yields 16 taco-sized tortillas or 8 burrito-sized tortillas.
  2. Store cooked tortillas at room temperature, wrapped in a towel, bread bowl liner, or bread bag for up to 2 days.
  3. To freeze, allow tortillas to cool completely, stack with wax paper between each, and place in a freezer-safe container. Keeps frozen for up to 3 months.
  4. To reheat, thaw tortillas and reheat in a skillet on the stovetop.
