Just a bit explanation on this dish that I got from Urban Dictionary :"

In Mexico and in much of central America, A "tortilla" is a flat pancake-like bread that is often the corner piece for Mexican dishes. Tortillas can be made from corn 

(maize) or wheat flour. Tortillas can be eaten alone.

Tortillas can be stuffed with: meat, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, hot sauce, refried beans, fajitas, peppers, and any combination of the above, along with just anything else you can think of.In Spain, however, a tortilla is a type of omelette. 

I saw this ready made tortilla in TESCO, at a  first glance I thought it was capati, but the written note on the packaging mentioned "tortilla" It tickled my mind since I did came across in my recipe book on Mexican Tortilla. I took a packet to test in my kitchen. 1 packet contained 1/2 dozen. Did my search in the internet and found this recipe. It's nice and suitable for breakfast. Like any other breads, you can stuff anything in it and any sauce goes. I love it simple with no sause, the tortilla itself was so tasty so I made it plain, well if you want you can have it with chili sauce, tartar sauce, mayo,mustard and anything goes. Give a try and let's make the Mexican wave.........
4 to 6 flour tortillas, large size 
4 chicken breasts, cut to 1/2 inch strips
1 clove garlic, minced
1 med. onion, sliced thin
1 med red pepper, cut into small strips or julienned
1 med. green bell pepper,cut into small strips or julienned
2 tbls. hot Mexican pepper sauce

1 tbls. Cajun seasoning
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp lemon or lime juice
1/2 tsp paprika
Mexican salsa
cheddar or longhorn cheese

To make tortillas chicken mixture, add oil to a heavy fry pan or cast iron skillet and over medium heat, saute the chicken, onion and garlic. Cook about 5 minutes, turn mixture often, Add peppers, squash, Cajun seasoning, hot Mexican pepper sauce, chili powder, lime juice, paprika and ground pepper. Cook and stir often for an additional 10 minutes or till vegetables are crisp tender.

To fill, spoon and spread slightly, chicken and pepper mixture on each tortilla, roll and place on a serving dish. Garnish with cheese and Mexican salsa. Servings for this recipe will vary depending on desired amount of filling used for each tortilla.


Saya pernah merasa hidangan ini dalam salah satu promosi KFC, teringin juga nak buat tapi tak tahu resipinya dan tak tahu nak dapat bahannya sehinggala saya terjumpa "tortilla" ni di TESCO baru-baru ni. Sekali pandang nampak macam roti capati, dua kali pandang baru tahu inilah dia roti yang saya cari-cari selama ini. Ada pun yang dah siap, tak payah pening-pening kepala membuat sendiri. Tortilla ni memang terkenal di bahagian-bahagian Mexico dan Spanish, memang makanan mereka. Bestnya tortilla ini intinya boleh diletak apa sahaja mengikut selera masing-masing. Sosnya juga ikut selera, cili sos, tomato, tartar, mayo, mustard apa ajela nak letak sambal kita pun boleh memang sedap, mudah dan ringkas.

Kalau agak-agak rajin tu, boleh buah tortilla tu sendiri, recipenya ada di net. Saya malas nak mengguli dan mencanai jadi beli tortilla yang dah siap aje. Intinya kenalah buat sendiri ya.
