flour tortillas

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I have adopted a huge case of 8" gordita shells. 

I'm not completely sure of the nomenclature, but I think it means

"if you try to deep fry, they will assplode".

 

8 inch; just small enough to make a sad burrito; too big to make a fish taco.

 

What the hell am I going to do with these things?

 

All I can think of is enchiladas, which I probably can't do here. 

And even if I did and they sold well, I'd have 3/4 of a case left.

It's a gross.

 

All I can think of is free chips and salsa for bar customers; take it in the shorts.

I use them to clean my fridge and make quesadillas. Any left-over combo is possible as long as there's cheese in it.

I can imagine you making a more elaborated pro-version served on a nice salad?

For quesadillas, lightly brush the outside with olive oil and sprinkle with salt before throwing them on the griddle. You'll end up with a crunchy, crispy crust that dramatically improves them and takes virtually no additional time. I also make half-quesadillas with a single, folded-in-half tortilla instead of a two whole ones as pictured above -- mainly because it's so easy to stick a spatula under the curved edge and flip along the fold without any risk of even the slightest amount of filling falling out. Cut into wedges with a pizza slicer and serve with a fresh dipping sauce.

What you do is spread shredded cheese over one, broil it for about 25 - 30 seconds just to melt the cheese, then you wrap that around a hardshell taco filled with all the goodness of taco night. Double decker taco. I love those.

Freeze in stacks, they freeze very well.

Chris,

I think I would use them to clean before calling that a quesadillaeek.gif

 

Lips,

The crispy salted quesadilla are popular bar food here. Sells lots of Shiner.drinkbeer.gif

Panini, I think he's European. El no sabe nada acerca de la comida raza.

 

 

I'm a little confused here. Gorditas are very thick corn tortillas that you griddle till crisp, split em like an English muffin and make a sandwich out of them.

 

OK, now that I look up the stuff online, they make wheat flour gorditas in northern Mexico. Same principle.

 

Why not do something like that?

Ala Taco Bell.  You're speaking my language, but I can't sell something like that to my clientele.

I would, however, eat at least two of those a day if left unsupervised.

If only I had the freezer space...  I'd save it for later.   :(

These ain't those.  They're like, double thickness four tortillas.  I use them at home to make gross food when I'm home and starving (eg. drunk).

Peanut butter rubbed gordita shells, lightly warmed in a "microwave" oven, with "store bought" Cholula or Tapatio garnish.  Served on a "stonewear" plate with a fork.  -$10

 

I dunno, thinking about just heading to the mission.

I didn't order them.  I've been "cleaning kitchen" with leftovers from other people's eff ups.

If I do a quesadilla, I'd have to order in cheese ($$$$$) just for that dish.

Flautos wont work; they just assplode (tried it).

 

Aww well, thanks for the advices.

I'm gonna feed them to bums I think; need to volunteer some time anyways -get rid of some guilt.

---I MEAN, I'm going to donate it to the less fortunate, because it's the right thing to do!  And I'm a good person!

[Edit]: Panini, haven't you heard of the new rage in Europe?  Haricot vert, Cheddar, and prosciutto quesadilla?  Thought you kept up on trends...

oh my

Chris, My bad.  Brain Fart!

I got you now. I thought you were going to use them as sponges to clean the fridge.eek.gif

 

We get upscale with them. We use them like a bellini with texas caviar on New Years.

We also break out our guns and fire them into the air!

We used to make fresh flour tortillas every day at my restaurant, the left overs were fried the next morning and turned into bunuelos.

 

Have fun
