  • Fry them up so they are sturdy and make Tostadas
    Cheese Enchiladas
    We tear them up and mix them in scrambled eggs with cheese and some cubed ham and onions
    I make tortillas and cheese for lunch or snack to be quick
    If you have a deep fryer you can cut them in fours and make tortilla chips =) add a little salt and pepper while they're cooling

    I love corn tortillas =)

  • Tacos, or eat your food with them. A mexican eats his meals with tortillas just like Americans with bread like Italians as well. You get me thier great with everything even warming them up and just adding salt or beans...ummmmmm

  • I bake them and make chips, use as tostadas, layer with cheese and chicken for a casserole

  • make taquitos (i think that is how it is spelled). mix cooked chicken or ground beef with some seasonings, cheese, or whatever fillings you like. roll up tight and fry or bake. dip in guacamole or sour cream.

  • Make snowflakes! Cut the tortillas as if they were snowflakes and bake until toasty not burnt then sprinkle powder sugar on top.
    Great for kids.
