What can I do with "old" flour tortillas?
My friend made me homemade tortillas last Friday. A dozen were left. I wrapped them in foil (didn't even get them wrapped well, I noticed later) and forgot about them.
Homemades are a treat so I want to salvage them. Any ideas? (Um, they were a little dry to begin with. :<) )
Sprinkle them with water and heat them in the oven briefly. They will perk up but you will then need to use them directly. You could also make a tortilla pie: ;ayer them in a pan with neat, cheese, beans, salsa, whatever you like, and bake. Just make sure there is something a little liquidy.
I take old corn or flour tortillas and cut them into wedges and toss in the microwave in a single layer and cook until just getting brown. Makes nice chips without added fat.
If you throw them in the microwave with a damp towel will moisten them right up. If they are pliable enough to wrap, enchiladas are a great use because of all the enchillada liquid will soak tortillas.
Make migas - basically an egg scramble with leftover meat, some onion. Toss in the tortillas, torn up. Top with cilantro, sour cream, salsa, avocado....
One of my favorite brunch dishes.
