Finally, after 4 years (or more) I attempted to make my own sourdough tortillas. I am happy to report a success. My neighbor said her husband had made corn tortillas with corn flour soaked in lime. I told her that I had always wanted to make flour tortillas. “Why don’t you just use your sourdough bread recipe and roll it out?” she asked. So I tried it.
Yea! It worked. Yum! Everyone liked it. It took me about 2 hours to roll out and cook 14 tortillas. I was also preparing quesadillas at the same time. That made it harder. I did get faster as I went along.
Tortillas are a favorite around here. I had been buying natural whole grain tortillas but could not find any with soaked grains.
We eat them often for lunch.
- Quesadillas with 1 T. refried beans, 1 T. sour cream (or homemade Creme Fresh), and shredded raw cheese.
- Shredded Chicken Quesadillas – Add your homemade salsa to shredded chicken, spread onto 1 tortilla, on the other tortilla spread 1 T. sour cream and shredded raw cheese.
- Lunch Roll Up – When we have to take a lunch to go, I put 1 T. homemade ranch dressing on a tortilla, 1 slice of raw cheese, any kind of meat you have, lettuce, and 1 lacto-fermented pickle.
- Reuben Wrap Bake – Put 1 T. 1000 Island Dressing on a tortilla, 1 piece of Swiss cheese, 2 slices of no nitrate beef, and 2 T. lacto-fermented sauerkraut. Roll up and bake for 15-20 min. until cheese is melted.
- Soft Tacos
My teenagers prefer any non-yeast bread products. They think it makes a big difference on their skin (less breakouts).
