Above: When you shop for corn tortillas, look for an ingredient list with very few items, like the two above. Also look for "organic corn" (see Notes above). These do not contain preservatives and so will likely be found in the refrigerated section of the store.

This dish makes great leftovers, and is also a delicious and filling on-the-go meal, hot or cold.
