Using Leftover Tortillas

February 12, 2007

Every so often I buy wraps and try to vary the flavors that I select. If it turns out that it is a flavor that my family is not crazy about, I end up with a lot of wraps which I certainly can't eat all by myself. Here's what I do, take the wrap and cut it into thin strips. Take a non stick frying pan and add a little oil to the pan. When it gets hot, add the strips. Watching carefully, allow one side to become slightly golden and then flip on the other side. When that side becomes golden, remove the strips and place on a paper towel to absorb any oil. These are great sprinkled on a salad or any kind of soup, especially tortilla chicken soup or just to nibble on.

Every time I purchase a small package of tortillas, about half of the package sits for days on the counter top or in the fridge 'til I wonder about its freshness and throw it out.

If you love dumplings but don't like the mess, buy or use leftover flour tortillas and cut in strips length wise and cross wise. Drop in hot chicken broth cook several minutes. - Dorothy

I have leftover corn tortillas in a bag. What can I do with them? The recipe called for 6, although I purchased the smallest bag available, I still have quite a few sitting in the bag on the kitchen counter.
