Pink Corn Tortillas

Project Description

Share a little about the ingredients and techniques used to create this dish/item. I made the corn tortillas using Bob's Red Mill Masa Harina and added a 1/2 teaspoon of beet root powder to give them a pink color. My two preschoolers loved helping me make them and eating them, too!

Q&A with Vanessa Wilson

Deb Schneider asked:
Ha! Love these! Some chefs press whole cilantro leaves or flower petals into the masa. I make my masa verde with pureed jalapenos, cilantro and garlic, and a little oil or pork lard - they look great and the flavor really comes through.
Vanessa Wilson answered:
That sounds yummy! Will have to try it. Thanks for the reply. :)
