Corn or flour tortillas??

I am curious if people like corn or flour tortillas more. I like flour tortillas , but my mom always buys corn, because she only likes corn tortillas. So it got me thinking if people have a prefernce or like both of them equally.

Flour for burritos, quesidillas, and buttering and munching on; corn for my homemade tacos. I actually make my meat from a roast, shred the beef and then put the beef in two corn tortillas and deep fry them.

It depends on the recipe and the mood I'm in. I use both regularly.

I like both - for different purposes. Flour for quesadillas, burritos, fajitas, chimichangas, and wrap sandwiches. Corn for tacos, nachos, enchiladas, buttered and rolled like bread with salsa, and everything else.

I agree, Mike. I like them both, but it really depends what your are making. I just went to try a new Mexican restaurant and they served flour cheese and onion enchiladas. It just wasn't right. Enchiladas taste better with corn tortillas, for instance.

I asked the waiter, and he said I could order corn tortillas, but they would take longer.

And I love my tacos with hard corn tortillas. Burritos: gotabe flour!

Happy cooking and eating Mexican food, my favorite cuisine of all - the hotter the better!

I'm in agreement for both. Each has their meal type and I'm an equal opportunity cook.
