Tortilla Round Up- 45+ Good Eats You Can Make With Tortillas!

Kids LOVE tortillas. Over the years we have come to know so many things that are great that have the main ingredient- TORTILLAS. If you do not know how to make them, check out my recipe. A great staple if you do not mind making them fresh. Even though I do not personally use a press, I do use my Lefse griddle to heat many up quickly. With the cost of groceries continually going up, I thought I would re-post this tortilla round up. Depending on how thin you roll them out to enjoy them, they still only cost pennies. If homemade is not your things, tortillas are still very inexpensive in the grocery store. Even the dollar tree, dollar store and family dollar carry them.

With the different dollar store type chains carry them, they can be found inexpensive. But do not rule out your grocery stores. The best price is our local grocery that sells them in bulk. You purchase them by the 4 dozen packs for just over $3.00! Either way here are some ideas starting with the most obvious perhaps:
