The difference between corn tortillas and flour tortillas

Tortillas are a staple of Mexican food – and you’ll find them in abundance in our fantastic Mexican restaurant. However, few people understand the subtle difference between corn and flour tortillas, and the sorts of dishes each are best suited to.

Corn tortillas are the most common of the two and are used in everything from tacos to enchiladas and chicken quesadillas. Corn tortillas can also be cut and fried to create tortilla chips or left to crisp up on a low heat to create cracker crisp tostadas.

Flour tortillas became a staple of the Mexican diet after Spanish introduced what flour to the country. These flour tortillas are softer than corn tortillas. These are typically used for burritos and soft tortilla wraps combined with salsa, guacamole, chili, and refried beans.
