tortilla englannista suomeksi
A flat round bread made out of cornmeal or flour. In Mexican cuisine they are often served with a filling or topping such as ''frijoles'' "beans", ''carne'' "meat", ''salsa'' "sauce", sour cream and cheese; in the latter case they are called quesadillas.

- From this dough are shaped small round forms, or a tortilla press can be used to more easily flatten many perfectly round, thin cakes. Tortilla machines, found all over Mexico and the Southwest, can produce hundreds of tortillas per hour.

- An authentic Spanish tortilla is traditionally made with just eggs, potatoes, onions, salt and pepper, but this version contains sliced red and green peppers for a bit of extra colour and flavour.
