Try these delectable tortilla desserts for fun treats the whole family will enjoy. Tortillas are flatbreads produced without yeast from corn or wheat flour, water, and salt. They’re popular throughout Latin America, although they’re most strongly linked with Mexican food. Tortillas are used in tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, and when they become stale, they are fried and used for chips, chilaquiles, and tortilla soup, also known as Sopa Azteca. Homemade tortillas are more flexible, with a more robust corn flavour that some people like. Apart from this, you can use tortillas to make a number of desserts, making it a very versatile item.
