In Mexico and in much of central America, A "tortilla" is a flat pancake-like bread that is often the corner piece for Mexican dishes. Tortillas can be made from corn (maize) or wheat flour. Tortillas can be eaten alone (I prefer them straight off the griddle with butter) but often are the ever important outer layer of burritos and soft tacos. Corn tortillas are what hold enchiladas together.

Tortillas can be stuffed with: meat, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, hot sauce, refried beans, fajitas, peppers, and any combination of the above, along with just about anything else you can think of that i failed to mention.

In Spain, however, a tortilla is a type of omelette.
My parent's never gave me money for lunch, so me and my friends would would go to the local mexican restaurant to eat and they would give me their extra tortillas. Delicious.

It's a typical Spanish and French dish. Sometimes called omelet. There are three types.

1st: "French/Plain Tortilla": Stir eggs on a soup dish, add salt. Then take a pan with hot oil in it and pour down the eggs. Wait for it to be cooked.
2nd: "Spanish Tortilla" (The best ever): Chop peeled and washed potatoes in cubes. Fry them. Then mix them with stirred eggs and add a pinch of salt. Put it all in a pan. Wait until it's cooked.
3rd: Some people just call it "tortilla" and maybe it's the most famous of the three but I have to inform you that it's not a tortilla, it's a "TORTITA". This is the Mexican one used in food wrapping and all. Please don't call it "tortilla" I was born in Spain and hurts me when I hear it, it's a TORTITA, nothing to do with that, just look at a tortita and a tortilla and I bet you can tell the difference.
-I'm not hungry tonight, I'll just have a tortilla
-French or Spanish?
- Spanish please, but don't fry the potatoes, just boil them so it'll make it less fattening.
