What do I do with my tortillas (Mexican cooking for dummies...)?
My wife has celiac disease (severe gluten intolerance).
On a recent trip to the States, I was able to buy some 100% corn tortillas and bring them back. You can only find the flour ones in Europe.
While it may have been thoughtful of me to bring these back, I'm not exactly sure what to do with them!
Is there a "Dummy's Guide to Mexican Cooking"?
I suppose my main question is this: do you generally fry the tortillas, or do you stuff them and bake them directly to make burritos?
I was thinking of stuffing them with a mix of red beans, chopped pepper and onion, salsa, and ground beef. Is that vaguely Mexican?
Having folded the tortilla, how do you close the ends?
Or is it normal if they flow out of the sides?
Any help on how to use my tortiallas would be much appreciated.
