Why did my tortillas turn green???

bex109 | Dec 2, 2009 11:33 AM

I bought La Tortilla Factory brand corn tortillas (Ingredients: Organic stone ground corn flour, Filtered water, Trace of lime.) and used them to make enchiladas.

When I pulled them out of the oven, the tortillas had turned a dark green! I used a sesame-chipotle sauce that I've used before, but never with these results.

My boyfriend and I ate them anyways, because they smelled too darn good, and there was no harmful reason we could think of that would turn the tortillas green.

Any ideas as to what happened? I tried Google, but nothing came up. Thanks!
