I've noticed living in ATX around 11 years, there are solid fans of the Corn Tortilla.. many of them. You would think growing up in Omaha, NE. Learning football w/ my daddy Maurice watching the state's team the Cornhuskers play. Being raised on Cornfeed beef. You would think I'd be a Big fan of Corn Tortillas. But I'm more of a Flour Tortilla Fan, especially when Queso's involved... Flour Tortilla chips.. Yummy. I'm thinking a Midwestern Thang. I did happen to run across some  'Other Tortilla' options that could have you straying from the straight Corn & Flour Tortillas...

7 Types of Tortilla You Didn't Know Existed:
Foodbeast's Isa Rocha did this write up on these 7. 

  1. Blue Corn - I guess that's different from the general corn since it's Blue Corn Tortilla?
  2. Nopal - Cactus mixed in corn flour to make a Tortilla -  It has more Cactus than Corn, so considered a Cactus Tortilla?
  3. Hoja Santa - This sounds Christmasy? It's a Mexican Pepperleaf, Hoja Santa is leafy herb that is blended and incorporated in tortilla masa. It gives the Tortilla a green color.. Christmasy! 
  4. Beet Root - Beet root, and Chickpea powder mixed in to make sweeter tasting Pink Tortilla. Never go wrong w/ Sweet & Pink right? 
  5. Jalopeno & Nopal - A Green Kick Your Butt Tortilla! Served for dinner for guests you'd like to see leave earlier. Pair w/ a Jalopeno Margarita.. Bye, Bye time could be pushed up.
  6. Pan Arabe - Tacos that use a thin Pita Bread base as the Tortilla
  7. Jamiaca - This Tortilla is made from the Jamaica Flower w/ the process of hot water being poured on the dried flower causes the Dark Hibiscus color. This would be considered a 'True Flower Tortilla' right?

So the Big Question ... If you had to pick '1', which Tortilla Fan are you ?
