For most of us, tortillas have always been around. But where did they originally come from?
Historians, who are experts in the history and culture of Aztec civilization, believe tortillas date back as far as 10,000 B.C. When the Spanish were in search of gold in Meso-America in 1519, they came across the Aztecs and were exposed to many of their foods and traditions.
In modern times, tortillas are still made and eaten in the same way – talk about a tradition! As time went on, tortillas because more and more varied and versatile – and now a worldwide product. Amongst many different types of additional ingredients (such as our savory range with salsa, spinach and cheese for example) tortillas can also been deemed as a sweet bread!
With editions of chocolate, sugar or cinnamon, tortillas can turn into an alternative base for many different types of deserts!
