How To Make Tortillas


A common complaint of Americans in London (especially those Americans who used to live in the Southwest) is that it is impossible to get good Mexican food here.

As proof, I submit the following "Recipe suggestion," copied verbatim from the back of the tortilla wraps we bought at Tesco (an English grocery store chain):

Fill 2 wraps with shredded lettuce or mixed leaves and then top with the following. Wrap and serve.

Indian Style Filling
• 125g (4oz) cooked Tesco Chicken Tikka Bites, chopped
• 4 x 15ml sps (4tbsbps) tzatziki
• 2 x 15ml sps (2tbsps) Tesco Mango Chutney

Mm, mm! Just like las tortillas de mi madre!
