Eating Etiquette (How to Eat...)
A tortilla is a thin, flat, unleavened bread made of corn or flour, baked on an iron plate or a flat stone, and served hot. Depending on the menu, a tortilla is eaten with fingers or a utensil. When laid flat on the palm of the hand or a plate, tortillas are buttered, folded, or rolled and eaten with fingers. If filled with chopped vegetables and meat, for example, as an enchilada, tortillas are eaten with a fork and knife.
