What can you say about a bread that can use flour or cornmeal and just happens to be an essential ingredient in notable Mexican food favorites like burritos, tacos, chimichangas and nachos? If you're not salivating yet, then you've just finished a big meal.

Tortillas can be mucho flexible, too. They can be used as a foundation for pizza, but don't stop there. You can also use them in roll-ups, pinwheel sandwiches and as shells for salads or dips. Yum.
