A bread originally made in Mexico, but can be found in many other coutries today. It is a thin, flat bread made with cornmeal, from white corn called "Masa". Tortillas are cooked on a griddle and are quite soft in texture. If they're cooked for longer they brown and go crisp, another way of serving them. Although Masa is not readily or commercially available in South Africa, a mixture of mealie meal, corn flour and cake flour can be use to make tortillas.

Use: They are delicious when stuffed and rolled with savoury fillings. Fillings include meat, chicken, cheese, vegetables and avocados. Tortillas can be stuffed with any filling of your choice.
