Corn or Flour Tortillas

I have always thought that enchiladas should be made with corn tortillas, but I saw a recipe on Tylers Ultimate for chicken enchiladas made with flour tortillas. So, against my better judgement I made it. The sauce was okay the filling was okay, but I hated the flour tortillas in there. It may be just a matter of what one is used to having. What do you guys think, corn or flour?

I use, and like, both. We just had some enchiladas recently and I used flour tortillas. They were quite good. Maybe your taste buds just like corn tortillas.

I've used both and will eat both. My kids are half and half, 2 like corn and 2 like flour so I always end up with both My favorite are flour. Neither is wrong, it's just a matter of which tastes the best to you.

Generally prefer the flour but am not fanatical about it.

I always prefer corn, not a fan of flour.

I was watching Emeril a bit a go, and he fried some tortilla strips for a dish he as making. It made me think about Doritos….tortilla chips. Anyone actually cut up corn tortillas and fry them as chips? Ever spice them up with something like powered cheese (do they make that….mac and cheese pack comes to mind) like a Dorito? How were they? I may have to start making my own!

Dumplings? Really? I may have to try that one day. Ive done a fast a furious chicken and dumplings with canned biscuits that is ok.I wonder how the flour tortillas would be (could they possibly swell at all)? Interesting. Thanks for the idea!
