Five ways to use... Flour Tortilla Wraps Ride the Mexican wave and get creative with tortillas 1. Tortilla pizza Use our Country Range 12” Flour Tortilla Wraps topped with a little of our Chilli Con Carne sauce to create a quick and easy Mexican pizza. Build the layers as you would a traditional pizza, top with our grated Mozzarella cheese and bake in a hot oven before finishing it with sliced avocado, NEW Country Range Sliced Green Jalapeños and a little rocket. Delicious! 2. Homemade Cajun spiced tortilla chips This is a fantastic way to use leftover tortillas by cutting them into wedges, coating them with a little Cajun spiced olive oil and baking at 180°C for 6-7 minutes. These are perfect served with a fresh made guacamole or hummus. 3. Tortilasagne Use tortillas the same way as you would use lasagne sheets to create a Mexican inspired spin on the Italian classic. Use our Chilli Con Carne sauce to make the meat filling and instead of the white sauce use a little sour cream. Top with a good sprinkle of our grated mozzarella for a super flavour packed main. 4. Cinnamon sugar tortilla crisps Take a couple of our tortilla wraps and spread a little butter across them as if buttering toast, sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar and cut in to triangles. Bake at 180°C for 6-7 minutes and serve warm as a Mexican accompaniment to our Salted Caramel Ripple Dairy Ice Cream or with a fresh fruit salad. 5. Baked egg in a tortilla shell In a lightly greased muffin tray take half tortilla wraps and carefully press in to the individual moulds. Crack an egg in to each mould and sprinkle with a little crushed chilli and sea salt before putting in a preheated oven for about 8 minutes. Add some grated cheddar and a few jalapeños and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling. Serve with some streaky bacon and crushed avocado as the perfect Mexican inspired brunch.
