What To Do with Old Flour Tortillas?
Posted May 09 2008 - 12:07 PM
Now, for me, that is BS (what can go wrong except getting a bit stale <you're gonna crisp them anyway... >), but Donna is fussy with stuff like that , so I end up buying another package.
So.....I got a bunch that I hate to just toss, being my frugal self.....I know with corn tortillas you can deep or oven-fry toast them to make chips....but since these are flour.....

I was thinking more along the line of chips, croutons, breadcrumbs or something like that.....something that they get sort of get buried and won't be any the wiser......
Maybe I'll take a few, spray them with oil, put them on sheet pan, top with some seasoning, and toss them in the oven for a bit and see what I get....sort of like pita chips?

I know what you mean - my wife wants all bread to be bakery fresh or forget it. go figure?
anyway - google Apple Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
A friend of ours brought it to a party and it was fantastic. Even the kids that never touch fruit or veg ate it. perfect as an appetizer or snack or whatever - just eat it ;-)

Use Crock pot
Mix refired beans, garlic powder (real is waaay better though), sliced black olice, shredded turke or chicken (or not, we've done this meatless many times)y, and sharp cheddar together in large bowl.
Layer of mexican Gravy on bottom of crock (stock, tomato paste, few herbs, flour to thicken slightly, chili powder to taste). Alternate layers of tortilla, bean mix, extra cheese, till reach top of crock. Pour remaining gravy over top of casserole. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Serve with good chips and homemade sour cream. The tortillas will soften int the juices and she'll never know.
