OrtegaFiestaFlatsYes, the Super Bowl was disappointing, but you know what wasn’t? The food.  I was given a sample of the new Ortega Fiesta Flats and came up with a very easy hand held delight.

Basically, you just take your nacho fixin’s and layer it in this lovely boat shaped corn tortilla shell.  The box said they were supposed to lay flat, but as you can see from the photo, they did not do as told. Then again, maybe I was trying to make the photo look fancy.

Didn’t matter.  They tasted just fine.  Fiesta Flats

The first one I had kept its structural integrity until the last two bites.  It’s entirely possible that I didn’t correctly guess the ratio of fillings to corn tortilla shell.  The second one held up all the way through.  Nothing dripped on to my carpet or clothing.

So, how do you make these lovely handheld fiestas? I’m so glad you read this far.


Taco meat
Refried beans
Shredded cheese
Sour cream

Feel free to improvise and add shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, or even black olives. If you are feeling super fancy, dollop on some guacamole!

You can heat up the Fiesta Flats in the microwave for about 60 seconds or the oven for a few minutes.

Take a small scoop of your favorite taco meat and layer it on the bottom. Follow with refried beans, shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream and of course bacon.

    Just when you thought tacos couldn’t get any better you add bacon. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this. I’m cruising for good recipes because I’m going to try the whole meal planning thing.

      I had some leftover from breakfast and just chopped it up. It was actually my fiance’s idea about a year ago. He suggested I put it on nachos, so now I just add it randomly to various Mexican dishes.
