  • 1 lb (500 g) cottage cheese
  • 1 lb (500 g) feta cheese
  • 9 oz (250 g) sour cream
  • 9 eggs
  • 1 oz (30 g) herbs
  • ⅓ cup (80 g) butter
  • salt to taste

Preparation:

  1. Season the cottage cheese with salt and break 5 eggs into it. Mix the cottage cheese until smooth, add the grated feta cheese, chopped herbs (a good option: basil, parsley and dill) and mix again. The filling for your tortilla pie is ready!
  2. Beat 4 eggs with salt and sour cream for the filling. Start assembling the pie: grease the sheets of tortilla with melted butter, spread the cottage cheese on them, and roll into rolls. Put the rolls in a pan forming a snail-shaped pie, pour the egg and sour cream mixture on top and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 400 °F (200 °C).

You will need:

  • ¾ lb (350 g) chicken
  • 2 spreadable cheese wedges
  • 6 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp herbes de provence
  • 3 sheets flour tortilla
  • 2 eggs
  • vegetable oil and salt to taste

Preparation:

  1. Season cream with salt and mix it with pepper, herbs and mustard. Boil chicken and process it with a meat grinder, season it with sour cream and spices and mix with grated cheese wedges.
  2. Form a chicken roll: layer the tortilla sheets and the filling until all the ingredients are used up. Then roll everything into a thick sausage and cut into slices about 1 ½ inch (4 cm) thick. Fry the rolls in vegetable oil in a frying pan, after dipping them in egg wash. The meal is ready!

Flour tortilla dishes don’t end there. You can cook lazy lasagna or mince pies the same way, it all depends on your imagination. Any filling goes well with tortilla sheets. Although, if you’re not ready to experiment yet, use soft cheeses as the filling, and the result will always be amazing!

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
