Cinco de Mayo means… tortillas!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
So a week ago I was contacted by TortillaLand with an offer to ship some tortilla to me if I’d make up some nice Cinco de holiday recipes and blog about the TortillaLand product. That’s the disclosure part. The rest of this entry is the “yum” part.
Let’s talk about the tortillas. They are uncooked, fresh tortilla. I can’t imagine how they could be any softer or fresher. They arrived in a cooler and were still chilled when I opened the box. I unwrapped some and immediately wanted to try one. I quickly cooked one up, ate it with egg and it was delicious! I started thinking about what I wanted to make for Cinco de Mayo.
I assumed (rightfully, it seems) that many people would make dinners, wraps, burritos, etc. I knew that was out for me. I have wanted to do some homemade tortilla chips for quite awhile but hadn’t found the time (or motivation) so that was definitely on the list. I did want to throw a bit of Mex spirit in so I knew I’d at least rock out a couple cheese quesadillas as well.
What I didn’t know even 3 days ago was that I would be blogging a *dessert* made with TortillaLand flour tortillas. But yes, I did dessert. Why? Because it’s FREAKING DELICIOUS. That’s why.
So here are the photos. First few are just the tortilla cooking (and puffing. They puffed GREAT!) The next few are some fried bananas I quickly heated. Assembly included adding some chocolate chips, warming in the microwave and rolling the finished product into a dessert wrap. I’ve included a few quesadilla and homemade tortilla chip photos as well, just so you can see the variety of foods I’ve made with my tortillas.
I will accept any sponsor offers people want to send but I’ll always be honest about the product. In this case, that’s SUPER easy. The TortillaLand tortillas were probably the best I’ve ever eaten (and my step-dad is Mexican so that’s a lot of eating.) I actually wish I could make them like this. I’d have to own a farm to keep myself in stock on flour, though. They’re that good. And yes, I’m having another egg wrap tortilla tomorrow for breakfast.
