The other day a reader said she was putting leftover beef stroganoff with a bunch of other flavors (including Sriracha, so you know it was good) into a tortilla and wrapping the whole mess up.
Tortillas. They are such a neat folding packet of carbs to stash other goodies in.
We had leftover Juan Saltando, our Latin-seasoned spoof on Hoppin' John. Mm! That would make a tasty burrito. Mix together the beans, rice, spicy greens and chorizo, toss in some chunks of cotija cheese (we subbed feta)... But. Maybe no tortillas... Or.
There was a pair of fresh poblano chiles in the crisper. We would make chiles rellenos, hold the greasy fried batter, and roast them in the oven until the peppers softened.
Poblanos: Nature's own tortillas.
(Verdict — good, even with no Sriracha. Those poblanos were harboring quite a picante secret of their own, capsaicin.)
