I forgot an absolute delicious one that ladies at my church make!!!

Take a tortilla and spread cream cheese all over it.  Roll it up, cut it into slices, and then dip it in butter (oooo!).  Then, coat it with cinnamon and sugar and bake in the oven until the cinnamon and sugar get a little melty.  Let them cool off and you won't be able to keep your hands off of those suckers!

Not very exciting, but some of my favorite tortilla uses...

I really like to spread PB on a tortilla, heat it in the microwave, sprinkle some Grapenuts on it, and then roll it up.  Honey is also a nice addition.  I also have always liked cream chesse and orange marmalade (or any jelly or jam) rolled up in one.

My husband and I really like to eat scrambled eggs, refried beans and cheese as a meal with tortillas as a side/bread. (The meal is in honor of his Latin American roots  Smiley

These are such good ideas!!

My friend's husband works for the company that makes Mission tortillas and brought us 2 cases of the corn kinds, the bigger wraps, the gorditas...everythi ng!

I've been wracking my brain for ways to use them all and keep things interesting. I'm definitely going to have to try some of these recipes!

I think I'll make a batch of the cinnamon sugar ones to munch while I knit tonight!

Think they are freezable?? I wouldn't be surprised if they were!

In case you ever make tortilla soup, you might want to take some of those corn tortillas, slice them into strips about 1/4- 1/2 inch wide and quick-fry them until crisp in HOT oil, and serve sprinkled on the top or on the side as a garnish.

Very freezable! I buy a ton of the flour (don't like corn) and use 'em for quesadillas (shredded chicken breast and taco sauce and cheese) or for when I run out of bread...

Take a tortilla, put chocolate (or butterscotch, or peanut butter or whatever) chips on it, cook in the oven @ 305f until a bit melty, roll up and add a dusting of sugar. cook a bit more until a bit more brown. I then slice it for easy eating.

When I was in high school they used to sell "pizza burritos" in the cafeteria. They are pretty much like McJulie-O said, just rolled up. Those were the best thing they sold. Even now when I see someone from high school we all gush about the pizza burritos. Yum.

Ooh I am glad I found this thread! Last night I was thinking about how else I could use my tortillas. I always end up buying them for one thing, then try and figure out what to do with the rest.

I use whole wheat. Do you think all these ideas will still taste okay?

i love tortillas. one of my favorite things to do is take a tomato and basil flavored tortilla, sometimes they have sundried tomatoes in them but not always, and put butter or olive oil on it, then sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. (i prefer shredded, but the parmesan in the shaker would probably work just as well) then i stick it in the toaster oven until the cheese is all bubly. it tastes a little bit like pizza because of the tomato and basil. sometimes i'll cut up some slices of deli ham and add that, or whatever i have in the fridge.

I'm diabetic and can't eat bread, so I use low-carb tortillas as wraps for every type of sandwich there is.  So I love all these ideas!

I also do breakfast burritos relatively often, keeping some normal non low-carb tortillas handy for my husband.  I fry some diced onion or red bell pepper in either chopped bacon or crumbly sausage, drain and add in some scrambled eggs, then wrap with shredded cheese and nuke.  I sometimes do up a whole batch of these, using a full pound of meat and about 10-12 eggs and freeze them for quick breakfasts during the week. 

I like doing pizza by placing a tortilla in a cast-iron skillet and topping with a very thin layer of sauce, then lots of mozzarella, pepperoni and whatever else, and baking until the cheese melts.  These come out like thin crust pizza, very crunchy, as long as the layer of sauce is thin enough. 

I also do a grilled cheese/quesadilla thing often.  I lay a tortilla in a cast-iron skillet, cover half with shredded or sliced mild cheddar or colby/jack, layer a couple slices of tomato, then another layer of cheese, then fold over.  Fry on medium heat for a few minutes, then flip and fry the other side.  Slice into quarters when done.

I like wrapping a chunk of cream cheese in them for quick sandwiches too.

Its late and I didnt feel like reading the whole thread to see if someone posted this, so apologies if they have. My boyfriends mom made this tortilla dinner like a month or so ago. She took this, grill/frying plate thing they own and put some butter on it, then put the tortillas on. She loaded half of them with cheese and the other she didn't put anything on. When the cheese was all melted and the tortillas were crispy we put what we wanted on them, then took the uncheesed tortialls and put them ontop to make sandwhiches. They were so good! I am not good at cooking and I don't do it, so I have no idea if this has a name or just something she felt like doing.
