Easy Beet Tortillas
These beet tortillas will add a lot of bright beautiful colour to your wraps, quesadillas and fajitas. They are easy to make, requiring only six ingredients and very little prep time.
- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 beets peeled and chopped in four
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4-1/2 cup water
- Extra flour for dusting
Add beets to a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add flour, salt, baking powder and process until all ingredients are incorporated. Slowly pour in olive oil, followed by water, a little at a time, until it forms a ball. The amount of water you need depends on your environment. If the dough gets very sticky and doesn't turn into a ball, remove it from the processor and add a little extra flour. Avoid overprocessing because it will make the dough too tough.
Turn dough onto a generously floured work surface. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Divide dough into eight equal parts. Roll each piece into a thin six-inch circle. Your shapes may not be perfect, but that’s okay. You can trim edges to get a more even circle and use the trimmings to make a smaller tortilla at the very end.
In a non-stick skillet or cast-iron griddle, cook tortillas over medium heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute on each side.
