Foodies Delight – Cheese Tortillas

I’m not the biggest fan of tortillas. I find them a bit bland and too ordinary. However! When I add a bit of cheese to the mix, it makes all the difference.

2 cups corn flour (Masa)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
(or any kind of cheese that melts and mixes well)
salt to taste


Mixing bowl
2 plastic sheets
Small frying pan

Cook It Up!

In a bowl mix up the corn flour and cheese with the salt. Next form small balls and place them in between the two plastic sheets. Take the frying pan and squeeze down so that the ball turns into a thin pancake (tortilla). Now take the tortilla and place it into the pan with oil and fry until golden on both sides.

Serve It Up!

In the Latino culture tortillas go with EVERYTHING!!! Eggs, meat, beans, salsa, salad, plain or a number of other food concoctions. It’s totally up to you.

Add a Pinch of Imagination and a Sprinkle of Creativity! (variations)

Tortilla fusions are yet to be discovered, so I say live a little. Add herbs and spices to the mix. Give them flavor and life!
