Are we to submit recipes for making tortillas, or recipes that use tortillas?

No actual recipes per se, but these are real popular around our house in the summer.

Grilled Tortilla 'Pizzas'

Hardware: Charcoal or gas grill, heat on one side only
All of these use large flour tortillas

Mediterranean:
Slightly wilted baby spinach
Thin sliced brined Kalamata Olives
Feta cheese crumbles
Thin sliced red onions
Chunked up artichoke hearts
Sliced fresh mushrooms
Peeled & deveined shrimp, marinated in a bit of Italian Salad dressing
Fresh thyme sprigs

Sear the shrimp over a very hot grill for 30 seconds on each side. Place in a bowl. Grill the tortilla on each side, brush with some Italian or Caesar salad dressing. Add toppings, strip thyme leaves over toppings, place away from heat and close grill. Heat until cheese is slightly melted through (shrimp will finish cooking).

Leftover BBQ:
Thin sliced red onions
Grilled chicken breast, cut into chunks or pulled pork
Chopped fresh cilantro
Shredded Mozzarella

Grill tortilla on each side, brush with your favorite BBQ sauce. Top with a bit of cheese, add chicken / pork, onions, and a bit more cheese. Sprinkle cilantro on. Place away from heat and close grill.

Fromage, L'oignon & L'ail (Cheese, onion, and garlic)

Caramelized onions (gotta do this ahead of time)
Roasted garlic cloves
Crumbled Chevre and Gorgonzola cheese
Shredded Mozzarella
Olive Oil
Torn fresh basil leaves

Grill tortilla on each side, brush with olive oil. Add some mozzarella, then garlic cloves, onions, chevre, and gorgonzola. Add basil, move away from heat and close grill to finish.

We have also done these with many other things - they are great when you want to clear leftovers out of the fridge. That last one is decadent - my neighbor asks for it whenever she comes over for them.

No no, not tortilla recipes but recipes that use tortillas. The more "left field" the better.

CALABACITAS TORTILLA CASSEROLE

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup grated zucchini
1 small onion, diced
1 plump garlic clove, minced
One 14.5 to 15 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chiles with any juice or 1 large tomato, diced, with ½ cup chopped roasted mild green chile, preferably New Mexican or poblano, fresh or frozen
1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
4 large eggs
½ cup half-and-half or milk
½ teaspoon salt or more to taste
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
4 flour tortillas, preferably thick ones 6 to 7 inches in diameter
¼ cup grated mild Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or asadero cheese or crumbled queso fresco (about 1 ounce)

1. Preheat the oven to 350*F. Grease a medium baking dish. A 1-½ quart soufflé dish or other deep round dish works perfectly for this.
2. Warm the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the zucchini, onion, and garlic and sauté until the vegetables have begun to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and green chiles along with the corn. Raise the heat to medium-high and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated but the vegetables are still moist, 5 to 8 minutes longer. Cool the mixture briefly.
3. Whisk the eggs, half-and-half, salt, and cumin together in a medium bowl. Arrange a tortilla in the bottom of the baking dish. Top with one third of the vegetable mixture and one third of the egg mixture. Repeat. Spoon on the remaining vegetable mixture, top with the last tortilla, and then pour the remaining egg mixture over it all. Top with the cheese. (The dish can be made up to this point the night before if you wish. Cover and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator 20 to 30 minutes before you plan to bake it.)
4. Bake for 30 minutes, until puffed, golden brown, and lightly set at the center. Allow the casserole to sit for about 10 minutes before slicing into wedges and serving.
Serves 4 to 6.

Like the chicken & dumplings recipe from one of the cooks at Central Market?

Buy rotisserie chicken, canned chicken broth, and flour tortillas.

Heat chicken broth in a large pot. Add shredded chicken. Cut tortillas into rectangles (about 1"x2") and drop into the pot. Simmer until broth is thick. Serve.

Grovite, I woulda voted for your migas.

I think tortilla pie is too pedestrian, or it would have shown up already; I certainly don't use a recipe for something I grew up on. It's good with or without meat. I like green enchilada/tomatillo sauce, and black beans, not refried beans. And lots of other ingredients! (queso fresco along with jack or cheddar.)

& flour tortillas sauteed in butter with sugar & cinnamon? Mmmmmm. Quite nukeable for a late night snack too.
