Adapted from Fieryfoods, these tortillas are spicy and hot! Use less chile or use milder chiles for less heat. You can have fun with these and add different spices and herbs of your choice. Here are a few interesting facts about tortillas: Tortillas are second only to fresh breads in U.S. sales and outsell bagels two to one. 55 percent of all flour tortillas are sold to restaurants versus 32 percent of corn tortillas. Americans eat 7 billion pounds of tortillas a year, the equivalent of one tortilla per person per day. 55 percent of all flour tortillas are sold in the west, and 54 percent of all corn tortillas. There are about 300 U.S. tortilla manufacturing companies. Tortillas are booming in Europe, too: A Mexican operates a successful tortilla company in Germany, capable of cranking out up to 2 tons of tortillas per day (Mexican and TexMex restaurants and food are becoming increasingly popular abroad.)
