Tortillas are soft, thin flatbreads utilized in numerous Mexican dishes, including enchiladas, burritos, wraps, and of course, tacos. Some are deeply fried and some are not, but the good news is that you can alter the recipe a bit to make it a tad healthier without going to too much trouble.
A tortilla is a type of thin, unleavened flatbread, typically made from corn or wheat. In Spanish, “tortilla” means “small torta”, or “small cake”. It was first made by the indigenous peoples of Mesoamerica before European contact. The Aztecs and other Nahuatl speakers call tortillas tlaxcalli.
