living in Mexico, I have to say that in the areas that eat predominately tortillas as opposed to pan (bread), while the flour tortilla is available, the corn are much more desired. They even had a vote down here on which to use. It was a economic issue, not so much a personal preference

Beware! If you order a "tortilla" in Spain, you will be served an omlette.

Happy cooking, Marty.

In NYC, it's Spanish and Puerto Rican. Anyone on the street who speaks Spanish is referred to as "a Spanish guy." It doesn't matter if s/he is Mexican, Puerto Rican, Hondouran, or Christopher Columbus himslef. If they speak Spanish, they ARE Spanish!
