Strawberry Tortillas — Blueberry Tortillas

Share This:


Chuls suggested we make something “Cool” for July 4th since there would be no fireworks, no festivities, not much of anything since Alex decided to swing by for a quick visit.  Thankfully we were spared the grunt and only had a full day of rain and slow Internet service so we are blessed and no one is complaining.  We are celebrating July 4th small this year, which is kinda cool- just us four hanging out and chomping on our “cool” colorful tortillas.  These tortillas are a twist on your ordinary tortilla recipe, simply replace the water with the juice of your choice.

We tried strawberry and blueberry juice to add the colors of our flag to our festive meal.  I made these in the morning and chuls had one slathered with dark chocolate almond butter and slices of green apple.  Pips went for a cheesy version which included sliced peaches.  Hubby loved both versions, but thought they would taste even better loaded with Texas brisket. I agree…Happy July 4th, have a wonderful weekend and may you spend time with the ones you love.  My family sends you love and well wishes.  Thank you for so many lovely comments for our well being in the wake of Alex, I am truly blessed to have great friends from every corner our our beautiful world.     Enjoy Sweetlife!

make 12

3 cups of all purpose flour

2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup shortening

3/4 cup warm strawberry juice

In a large bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder.  With hands cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly (similar to the texture of pie crust).  Warm  juice on low heat or in the microwave.  Add the juice to the flour mixture and begin kneading, until all dough comes together.  If the mixture is too moist add 1 tbsp of flour and continue to knead adding more flour if necessary.

Cover dough with a damp cloth and allow to rest for 15 minutes.

After dough has rested separate into 12 balls.  Lightly flour your surface and begin rolling out each ball into a round, 1/8 inch thick circle.  Heat skillet or cast iron comal and cook each tortillas 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

  4. Hi ^^,
    I made these last night, only subbing water for the juice and they were soo good!

  5. Tortillas are our catch all for “what’s for dinner.” These WILL be on our menu. Saving it now! Mmmm.

  6. I love how you incorporate colour into your meals. Sometimes after cooking, I realize there’s a lot of beige going on.

  42. You’re so creative! It’s real cool to see this July 4th inspired tortillas. Who can say no to them? Happy July 4th to you and your family!

  43. These are definitely ‘cool’!

    I’m a little embarrassed to say I’ve actually never made my own tortillas. A friend of mine teases me and says, “And you call yourself a Cook?!” I obviously need to get on the bandwagon!

  44. You always have such unique ideas! So creative.

    I think these are my favorite red white and blue recipe I’ve seen so far!

    Happy 4th!

  45. I LOVE the blueberry tortilla – you are seriously da bomb chica!!! Glad to know you were all safe and hope you have a quietly fabulous Independence Day :)

  46. Oh my gosh, I think you are the coolest person ever. This is the most creative red-white-blue I’ve seen.

  47. what a phenomenal idea! of course i’ve seen spinach- and tomato-flavored wraps, but never anything fruity! brilliant, and masterfully-executed as well!

  48. You can’t begin to understand how excited I was when I saw this post. I grew up in Houston, and I have a love affair with tortillas…I’ve seen a lot of cool recipes utilizing them, but I’ve NEVER seen anything as creative as this. I am going to give this a try ASAP. Thank you for setting off culinary fireworks!
