This week was Cinco De Mayo! And…a ridiculous amount of people were unsafely distanced outside of the Mexican restaurants in my neighborhood waiting to pickup orders for dinner. Packed onto the sidewalk like sardines in the name of tasty tacos and margaritas. Come on, people. I am all for supporting local businesses (especially during these times), but leave a little space, huh? If you, like me, want to skip the crowds, indulge your Cinco de Mayo cravings, and make use of your newfound sourdough starter all at the same them, then boy oh boy have I got the answer for you. Sourdough Flour Tortillas!
I know, I know. At this time in our crazy world, everyone and their mother is baking bread. There’s been a run on flour! A crazy shortage of yeast! People have been craving regular yeast breads, instant yeast breads, you name it! Is the smell of a freshly risen loaf? The swell of pride in one’s chest at being able to slice into a perfectly risen, crusty loaf and knowing that you made that? Maybe it’s both. Maybe it’s neither. But what I do know is that when the yeast ran out, the world turned to sourdough. Intimidated at the idea of a sourdough starter? Or sourdough in general? Don’t be. It’s okay. I’m here for you.
