Tired of using tortillas for just tacos and quesadillas? Here are 15 Creative Ways To Use Tortillas in the kitchen!

If you ever read my blog or browse my recipe index, you'll probably quickly pick up on the fact that I LOVE Mexican food. In fact, I'd say we eat some sort of Mexican/Tex-Mex type thing for dinner at least 2 days a week. It just never gets old. 

Because we eat it so frequently, I started making my own homemade whole wheat tortillas a couple years ago because it's just so darn easy. I even make a corn version sometimes! There are hundreds of homemade tortilla recipes out there to fit any kind of dietary preferences you may have...but that's not what this post is about. 

This is about encouraging you to think beyond the most traditional uses for tortillas - tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc. Those are all super-easy options and staples in our dinner rotations but there are so many more recipes you can make using tortillas! 

I rounded up 15 deliciously creative recipes for you to check out. Some use flour tortillas and some use corn, but all are worth trying! There are even a few dessert options in there!
