Hello everyone,

I bought some Pepito corn tortillas. I am not crazy about Mexican food or tacos but thought maybe I could use them as "wraps" Does anyone do this? Any recipes? Do you use them hot or warm them up? What do you think is the best brand that you find in the local store. Thanks Cindy

I sometimes heat them up in a fry pan with a bit of oil, or I heat them up in the toaster oven or microwave. I like the microwave it makes them moist and if you do a few min in a plastic bag for a about 30ish seconds then, it becomes soft and I can use it as a wrap or for enchiladas.

I put them in the oven for a few minutes to heat them up. Then I put mayo, gluten-free turkey, a carrot stick and a cucumber stick, salt and pepper and roll it up. Sometimes I add avocado in addition to, or instead of the carrot and cucumber. :)

I like the Food for Life sprouted corn tortillas the best.

Sometimes I also put scrambled eggs in corn tortillas for breakfast.

I like to put them in a skillet with spray olive oil

Cook them on Medium heat until they have little sear marks on them

Flip it over - put cheese on it, then put another tortilla on top, flip it over so the cheese is melted and the top/bottom both have little sear marks on them

Plate it with diced chicken, ground beef, beans, salsa and guacamole -- yum yum!!

I use them for anything I would have put between two slices of bread. Today I put one in the microwave for 30 seconds with a little shredded cheese on top and when it was done, added a gluten-free hot dog and a little mustard. Yesterday was leftover corn, guacamole, cheese, lettuce and pico de gallo. Anything and everything for me! Just in moderation...

I use them to make small pizzas. The result is similar to the thin crust variety. My favorite ingredients are: chopped onions, chopped red pepper, olive pieces, canned mushrooms, chopped Healthy Choice Ham, hand grated Sorrento Mozzarella cheese, oregano. No tomato sauce or oil. Bake at 450 until the cheese is the way you like it.

Bad for my reflux. Excellent for my soul.

Beautiful words. Sounds like a country song! :) I will try that idea, too. Thanks!

If you're looking for a way to cook them without oil I "toast" them right on my gas stove.

My stove is impeccably clean, otherwise I wouldn't recommend it, but you can put the tortilla right above the flame for about 10 seconds, flip and do it again!

YUM!

I use mission corn tortillas too, I always try to support the brands that support us by telling us they are gluten free! I use them for everything since our bread just doesn't do it for me...

I really like putting turkey breast with cheese and mustard on a tortilla,

Also, I find they are really good as a breakfast burrito with eggs, cheese, salsa and sour cream..YUMMY!

:D

Never heard of Mexican lasagna. Did a quick search though and found a recipe. Looks and sounds delicious. Might try it this weekend. Anything you do special when you make it?

Thanks for the idea!

I always microwave mine in-between damp paper towels to keep moist. About 10-15 seconds on each side, then I add turkey and cheese and nuke again for 20 seconds (with no towel on top). Roll and eat.

All these suggestions are good!

For mine,

I layer the bottom of a baking dish with corn tortillas (and a little olive oil)

I then layer

Refried Beans

Ground Beef or Chicken (cooked with onions, peppers, garlic and taco seasonings)

Cheese

Corn Tortillas

R BEans

Beef or Chicken

Cheese

Repeat until you're at the top of the dish (usually 2-3 layers)

Then bake for 25 minutes on 375

Top with Salsa and Guacamole and Sour Cream

Serve with Tostitos...or Mission Chips!!

Oh my goodness, how funny. My husband and I thought we invented Mexican lasagna! We were trying to use the corn tortillas, stuff and rolled, and make enchilads but that didn't work and turned into a lasagna-like casserole. Now we make them that way on purpose.

We heat drained browned beef (with salsa and sour cream) in baking pan, layer tortillas, layer meat, layer cheese, repeat twice and bake. Salsa and guac on top. Yummmy.

MEXICAN LASAGNA

olive oil

1lb ground beef and 1lb ground chicken

2 tablespoons chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 (14oz) can stewed tomatoes

1/2 cup taco sauce (I use Ortega)

1/2 cup salsa (again, I use Ortega)

1 can (15oz) black beans

1 can corn kernels drained

corn tortillas

2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar or pepper jack (I dont use an exact amount on this, just what looks right)

2 scallions, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 425

In large skillet, brown the ground beef, drain most of grease, save some to brown the chicken.

Add chicken and season with chili powder, cumin and red onion.

When all browned, add the stewed tomatoes and taco sauce and salsal.

Add black beans and corn.

Heat mixture all thru then season with salt to your taste.

Coat a shallow baking dish with olive oil, use tortillas to cover bottom.

then build lasagna in layers of meat and bean mixture, then tortillas, then cheese.

then repeat. Your last layer should be cheese.

Bake lasagna 12-15 minutes (sometimes it has to go a bit longer)

when it comes out put chopped scallions on top

This receipe makes a lot of lasanga.. but the leftovers the next day are even better!!!!!

Hope you enjoy!!

We do variations of pizzas too, but we use 2 layered togther with a little cheese in the middle to make them stick together. gives it a little more support.

We also do quesadillas. It's basically a grilled cheese sandwich! I also add grilled chicken, tomato or whatever is on hand.

OK don't freak out right away..the recipe may sound weird but its so great, I've eaten about 15 in the last 3 weeks.

OK so u take two corn tortillas (I use 6 inch ones) spread 2TBS of Natural Peanute butter on one of them, then u put some real thin shreddings of chicken over the peanut butter, enough to decently cover the peanut butter. Then put some raisins on there and a little honey. Then fold the tortilla that has the the stuff on it in half like a taco, then wrap the other tortilla around it and wrap it all on aluminum foil or at least the bottom to keep it together. GREATEST TASTING CORN TORTILLA RECIPE. TRY IT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK
