Ever heard of a burrito?

I do this too, but I also sprinkle some cinnamon on after I butter it.

Heat in a little pan. I like the corn/flour mix ones. They benefit from a little cooking on the stove. Then when the pan is hot from heating the tortilla, add some butter, scramble an egg, and you've got a dreamy breakfast taco. If you have potatoes, tomato, bacon or avocado to add in that thing, do it. Mmmm breakfast taco

Welcome to San Antonio. And El Monte, Ca. I have ten fresh made tortilla stores within walking distance to mom, and the only whole wheat bread I could find was a stale-dated one at the one very old 7-11 store in a weird area.

Different culture. Fascination anthropology/archeology stories on TV right now about corn being such an important part of meso-America and it's influence on settlement. I'm growing blue corn next year.

In San Antonio, we eat bread and tortillas, not tortillas instead of bread. We can easily find whole wheat bread and even gluten free bread or expensive organic bread like Dave's.

For the OP, start going to restaurants where they serve tacos, and you'll figure out what all those tortillas are for.

Are they flour tortillas? If so, the extra large ones are used for making burritos.

Standard size flour tortillas can be used for all sorts of things. The standard are used for quesadillas, but you can use the extra large ones if you want to.

Melt a bit of butter in a frying pan. Lay in a flour tortilla, cover half of it with cheese. In a few seconds, the tortilla will become pliable. Fold it in half over the cheese.

Lightly brown the tortilla, then flip it over to brown the other side.

If we want fresh tortillas, we have to make them ourselves. No groceries locally make them.

If they are corn tortillas, I don't know what the extra large ones are used for. I tried making them into burritos and it wasn't a success. They are two big for tacos or tostados.

The only use I can think of for them would be to make salad bowls and I'd think there would be a limit to the customers for that purpose.

They would work for an enchilada casserole where you were layering and not rolling.

I scramble a couple eggs & heat up small pieces of Jimmy Dean sausage, in a frying pan (add in whatever spices you want & purple onion, if you want). Warm up a flour tortilla & a bit of butter, in pan. Put eggs & sausage in tortilla, roll up ...yum...
