Mexican Flatbreads

Mexican food is one of my favourite cuisines. From fajitas to frijoles and tacos to guacamole it is so flavourful and delicious. After having quite a few Mexican meals recently I wanted to recreate my favourite dishes at home – starting with these easy Mexican flatbreads.

The flatbread themselves are very easy to make and can be used as a base for a number of toppings – in this recipe I have done smokey beans, crispy sweet potatoes and herby tofu – but you can totally change it up and use whatever toppings you like.

Ingredients: Serves 2

Flatbreads:

  • 1 cup Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Dried Herbs.

Smokey Beans:

  • 1 can of Mixed Beans
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Lemon Juice

Tofu

  • 1/2 Block of Tofu
  • Dried Herbs
  • Salt + Pepper

Extras toppings:

  • Sweet Potato
  • Sour Cream

Method:

  1. Start by cutting your sweet potato into small cubes, tossing with salt, pepper and olive oil before baking in the oven for about 20 mins at 180 degrees.
  2. To make the beans – drain the beans and add to a saucepan with the cumin, smoked paprika and paprika along with a pinch of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  3. Add a splash of water to the beans and leave to simmer for about 5 mins. Once bubbling, reduce the heat and mash with a potato masher or fork – leaving some whole beans intact. Continue to cook for a further 5 mins – stirring frequently.
  4. To make the tofu – cut the tofu into cubes. Add the the dried herbs and a pinch of salt + pepper to the tofu making sure it is evenly coated.
  5. Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan before frying the tofu until golden and crispy.
  6. To make the flatbreads – Mix the flour, yoghurt, oil, salt + pepper and dried herbs in a bowl until a dough forms.
  7. Tip onto a flour surface before halving the dough and rolling into two flatbreads about 1/2 cm thick.
  8. Dry fry in a non stick pan for around 3 mins per side until golden.
  9. Assemble your flatbreads and add all of your toppings before digging in!
