tonight I put sandwich steak on a tortilla, added a slice of American cheese, cooked in microwave three minutes, added pasta sauce and lettuce, and rolled it up.

That's dinner.

I've never been in love with wrap sandwiches, but I've started grilling them with my panini press, which makes them a little more thrilling. Just spritz 'em with a little olive oil before putting them on the grill.

You can cut tortillas into wedges with kitchen shears, and bake them in the oven for your own tortilla chips.

They make okay thin-crust pizza crusts.

Cut them into strips, toast them, and use to garnish soups.

In place of hot dog buns

Use instead of bread - almost any sandwich filling will do.

Tonight for supper we had steak strips topped with cheese, jalepenos, and slaw (yes, we live in the south) wrapped in flour tortillas. We have wrapped hamburgers or whatever meat we cook. The toppings vary with the meat: lettuce, tomato, cheese, etc. Not as filling or fattening as a bun.

For a nice sweet snack, spread butter and jelly, jam or honey on a flour tortilla. You can roll them up or make them like a quesedilla. They have to be hot and fluffy though

I like warming a couple of corn tortillas, then cutting them into the size of chips, then butter and heat a pan, adding the tortilla strips with chopped red onions stir for about 30 seconds or so, then adding scrambled eggs on top. Makes for a hearty breakfast with the scrambled eggs having a nice texture to them. You can add salsa or other toppings.

Also, thought about something else I used to make often, but I can't find the recipe. It was a Mexican lasagna. It used corn tortillas, ricotta cheese, a meat sauce that was seasoned with chili powder or taco seasoning (can't remember) and in used monterray jack instead of mozzarella. It was really good. I need to find that recipe. But I guess that counts as Mexican food? Again, OP, which kind of tortillas?

Isn't saying you don't want to make mexican food with tortillas like saying you don't want to make italian food with pasta?

I make tacos out of any one of mix of the following: marinated steak, chicken, shrimp, leftover roast beef, ground beef, canned beans, homemade beans, avocado, cheese.. The seasonings and other toppings are up to you so make it taste as "non-mexican" as you like. A taco is just anything wrapped in a tortilla.

I've made the layered casserole thing with refried beans, corn tortillas, cheese, and chicken.. pretty good, not my favorite.

Flour tortillas make nice wrap sandwiches (try asian seasoned meatballs with shredded cabbage and plum sauce.. oy).
