Whole Wheat-Cheddar Tortillas with Smoked Paprika and Turmeric


Okay, so yes, these are as delicious as they look. And they are just as easy to make. You can add or subtract whatever seasoning you like, or use none at all. Use them for tacos or burritos or just simply as bread to snack on or to scoop up dip. The method is this simple...mix everything together, knead it and let it rest, roll them out and cook them on top of your stove. It couldn't be simpler. I hope you try these, you won't be sorry...


100% Whole Wheat-Cheddar Tortillas with Smoked Paprika and Turmeric
Makes 12 tortillas
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons turmeric
½ teaspoon sea salt
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ cups warm water
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (about 3 or 4 ounces)

Mix the flour, baking powder, smoked paprika, turmeric, and salt together in a small bowl. Add the oil, and using your fingers, rub the ingredients together until it resembles course cornmeal. Add the water and cheddar cheese; stir to form a dough. Knead the dough by hand for a few minutes, then allow it to rest for 15 minutes. Cut the dough into 12 pieces. Using a small rolling pin or wooden dowel, roll the tortillas out very thin on a lightly floured surface (about 10” each). Heat a large skillet and cook the tortillas one at a time on both sides until lightly blistered and browned.
