I wanted to make those flavored (over-priced) tortillas that you buy in the store. I think that I have figured it out. The secret is to use a blender or food processer to blend the vegetable or herb in with the water, and use it for the liquid. Also, when rolling out the tortillas, it's very helpful to roll them out on a lightly floured wooden board... really helps acheive the thinness of a good tortilla. I've made these with roasted red pepper from a jar and frozen spinach. Other ideas would be jalepeno, sundried tomato, garlic herb, basil, or whatever you can dream up. I hope you like them.
