Tortillas usually feature an extensive list of unpronounceable ingredients. Surprisingly, making sourdough tortillas from scratch is not that hard at all! You can use wheat or spelt flour, or even gluten-free flour mix. These tortillas taste so incredible, that you are are going to get completely addicted to their flavor!
Children love to participate in rolling out the dough. I cook my tortillas on a low flame on an oil-free cast iron skillet: about a minute or two on each side.
The recipe makes 12 tortillas, which can be kept in the fridge in a towel and then in a ziplock bag for about 10 days. They can also be frozen.
