Tortillas are a wonderful Mexican flat bread that are typically made from corn or flour. They are the foundation of many Mexican recipes and are even fried or baked to make tortillas chips.
Although tortillas are traditionally made with masa, or ground corn flour, wheat flour tortillas are just as delicious to my mind.
You can easily buy tortillas but the homemade product is far superior since you can control their thinness or puffiness and how done you like them.
Tortilla wraps are a great lunch but are also popular as a quick and easy dinner as everyone can help themselves.
This is a creamy chicken tortilla soup/casserole I just threw together one night. The recipe is not concrete... a little more or less here or there wont hurt! Also - this recipe is shown for 2 people since it's just my boyfriend and I but we each had seconds and a little bit leftover.
Go on, have a go at making these yourself! A simple mixture of masa harina a fine cornmeal ground from white maize) and water results in the most wonderful corn tortillas you've ever tasted. The secret is to use a cast iron pan. Most supermarkets sell masa harina (maize flour) now.
