This layered Southwestern meal just can't be beat. It gets its spicy flavor from green chilies, chili powder and cumin. Using a slow cooker liner inside of the cooker makes it easier to lift and remove the meal so it can be cut into individual wedges. —Judy Ragsdale, Queen City, Texas Skip links
Mexican tortillas perfect for fajitas, quesadillas, Mexican pizzas, burritos, nachos. They freeze well. Just stuff them with anything you may have on hand! This recipe, I learned from watching my Mom in Mexico, however, nobody (not even my Mom) knows how much of every ingredient you are supposed to use, so I experimented with different amounts of ingredients and came up with this one, which is pretty good and not so loaded with fat. This is great to do with kids on the weekend, and something you can enjoy anytime!
A favorite El Salvadoran snack, homemade tortillas stuffed with fresh queso blanco cheese are often paired with a traditonal coleslaw called curtido. Farmer's cheese or mozzarella can be substituted for queso blanco.
This is the real thing! A simple mixture of masa harina and water results in the most wonderful corn tortillas you ever tasted. The secret is to use a cast iron pan! You can buy masa harina at Mexican grocery stores or in the ethnic food aisle of large supermarkets.
