When I was in the US last year, thanks to my good friend Rhonda and the phenomenon that is Costcos, I discovered these soft corn tortillas. We get corn tortilla here of course, but they tend to only be the crispy ones – things you would use for tacos, not things that you can roll. The ingredients are all gluten-free, but they do note on the packet that they’re made in a factory which also produces products containing gluten. I brought back an enormous bag of 100 of these beauties (they cost the princely sum of US$2.99). I made them into smaller bags and froze them and have been eking them out ever since.
They are best lightly fried or toasted and then stuffed with any yummy mix you can think of! I often use chicken, tomatoes, capsicum and avocado, seasoned with cumin, coriander and chilli, and then with cheese and sour cream added. Or a nacho type mince with lots of veges added to it.
Last night, I made enchiladas. And I used the last small packet of my corn tortillas. I did share them with my daughters and my husband though, and I thought of my US trip while I did. I think I may have to talk to the Gluten-free Grocer and see if these can be brought in. Either that or encourage my American friends to visit more frequently!
