Great Tortilla Recipes from Soup to Salad

Tortilla RecipesWith Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, you might be looking for a few good Mexican recipes. You might even be considering making them with your own tortillas. Either way, we can do that, with tortillas that lead to soup, a main course, and even dessert.

 

Tortillas are traditionally made with corn flour, and that’s what we’ll be rolling out here. But tortillas made with wheat are another option, especially for our gluten-free friends. Tortillas are the basis of just about any Mexican dish you can think of, plus a bunch that take their inspiration from Fajitaville.

 

We’ll kick off with a recipe for the tortillas themselves, followed by great dishes that use either homemade or store-bought. Either works well for the options here, like the one for a salad wrapped up like a burrito. We’ll also show you clever ways to layer tortillas—on their own or in a dish—that showcase this flat bread’s versatility.
