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.
