Today for lunch, I put a few slices of rare roast beef and a few pieces of sharp cheddar cheese on a tortilla, and rolled it up. Super easy and much less "bready" (carby).

But my most typical use for tortillas is to make little pizzas. They're not all created equal, though. Some tortillas burn, some are too floppy for pizza. I've done my research on this, trust me -- lots of trial and error -- and the winner is Old El Paso, medium soft tortillas for this job. They stay firm but don't burn. I put a thin layer of tomato sauce on, shredded cheese, and -- what I like -- either anchovies or green olives. They're too thin to pile on a ton of meat, not that I want that anyway. Bake on the middle rack at 375 degrees until the cheese is melted and bubbly. At this point the tortilla will be light brown around the edges and perfect.

Spray a casserole dish and do layers....1st put down shells then the chicken, sour cream and cheese, then a second layer and finish with the last of shells and cheese for the top.spam! It is better fried than typed Bake covered for about 20 mins then uncovered for the final 20 mins. Serves 4 good size portions

You can also add kernel corn, olives, green peppers and add' onions, etc to it if you like.

Terrific recipes, Thanks! There are also some decent tasting low carb tortillas out there now. A quick snack for me is a PBJ rollup. Easy peasy!

Mexican "pizza" with melted cheese and salsa. Quesadillas with melted cheese and whatever else you want like chicken or avocado or any meat or shrimp. You can season them, too, with a little butter or oil and some seasonings and serve them warm with anything with a sauce or you can cut them into triangles and deep fry them for chips.

They are each versatile, but I have to ask - flour, or corn tortillas?
