Moo-Shu Pork Roll-Ups
We simplified this Chinese favorite by rolling its sweet filling inside a sturdy flour tortilla instead of a traditional pancake. Moo-Shu Pork filling typically includes wood ear mushrooms, named for how they look growing on the sides of trees. We used easier-to-find shiitakes.
Ham, Cheese, And Mushroom "Crepes"
It takes a skilled hand to make crepes, but in this recipe, tortillas serve as a simple stand-in, folded around a savory filling and topped with a creamy, cheesy sauce. Tr?s bon!
Curried Chicken Kati Rolls
The Kati Roll is India's answer to the burrito. Ours is filled with tender slices of chicken that have been marinated overnight, grilled onions, and a sweet, mango chutney-inspired sauce. Don't be deterred by the exotic-sounding ingredient garam masala: you can find it in the spice aisle of most major supermarkets.
It's Greece meets West (well, Southwest) with this simple-to-make spanakopita-quesadilla combo. Even kids who don't usually like spinach may come around when it's mixed with feta and mozzarella and tucked inside a crispy tortilla.
