  1. Its really baffling to find a variety of tortillas in the western part of the world and where you are. When I was in Canada a few months ago saw tortillas made from purple corn, spinach, roasted red pepper, plain and so many other varieties… some made from plain flour, some with wheat flour and some multigrain. I got confused and eventually picked the roasted red pepper ones.
    Lovely colourful filling, very tempting.
