Tortillas are a staple in Mexico and often you have left overs from a meal. Half a kilo is about 21 tortillas so that means if you have a meal at home for two peopleĀ  you might have half or more left over. This recipe incorporates the use of tortillas. The great thing about this recipe is that you can use fresh or day old. Using day old helps reuse food. It does not matter if the tortillas are a little hard because you are going to put them in a pan and cook them which softens them.
