We’re excited to see so many people writing about tortillas lately.  Here are a few use ideas we love from a recent blog post:

  • Cheese Omelet Tortilla Cook one egg how you like it, fried, scrambled or flat. One slice of cheese is enough, but you can use more. Put the contents inside a pan-toasted tortilla. Add hot sauce if you can handle it. That should have just taken you less than three minutes…four if you count eating it.
  • Chicken Quesadilla. This could work for lunch or dinner, but it works fastest if you have leftover cooked chicken. If you don’t, quicken the cooking time by chopping the chicken into small pieces and cook it with some oil, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Then put it inside two tortillas with cheese. Toast the quesadilla in the cast-iron pan. Add all the fixings. Raw onion is good with this, too–or better yet, my homemade fresh salsa.
  • Pizza. It’s not as good as the real thing, of course, but in a pinch, tortillas make fine pizza crusts. Again, cook them up first so they are a bit crusty. Then add your toppings and broil. Thinner toppings work better.
  • Chips for Dip. Melt some butter and fresh crushed garlic in a pan, spread the mix over the tortillas, add a bit of Parmesan or Romano cheese, and bake or broil for a quick, healthy, and fresh-tasting party chip. Cut them up into slices before or after, depending on your preference.
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla. Fry up a tortilla in a pan (or use melted butter!), sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top along with melted butter.  Simple and so, so good.
