Default Things to do with leftover tortillas

I love fish tacos, but just want TWO. And always have leftover tortillas.

I like flour tortillas better than corn tortillas, but would love to hear ideas about what you do with any leftover tortillas.

Last night, I thawed a one-cup container of shredded beef and had a couple of beef tacos.

Tonight, I thawed a one-cup container of Pork Chile Verde, drained off the liquid, toasted some tortilla wedges (Pam'd and salted) in the oven and topped it all with same stuff I always have ... for nachos.

Other ideas?

cut into strips, then deep-fry & season 'em. meanwhile, make a dipping sauce, or a cinnamon-sugar, to toss them with.

I make roll up sandwiches - even peanut butter, mayo and bananas.

I make pizzas from them. We have here quite similar thin bread like tortilla, called "rieska" (usually made by wheat or barley). By "rieska" we make appetizer rolls, filled with salmon, grilled meat, cheese or vegetables:

or cold sandwich cake:

I will translate recipes if you are interesting.

I often use them for breakfast wraps. Scramble a couple eggs, cheese, 'other stuff' , then roll it up like a burrito.

I've never done it, but some people use flour tortillas to make chicken and dumplings.

I also do something like Moxie suggested but call them breakfast burritos. Sausage, egg, and cheese are my favorite.

I recently made my first tortilla pizza with a flour tortilla. It comes out like a cracker crust pizza. I like to use pesto on the bottom, then mozzarella, then artichoke hearts, black olives, and feta cheese, with a little drizzle of olive oil.

I put one on a cookie sheet, shred cheddar cheese on it, a little salsa on top, jalopinos to taste and broil. Quarter with a pizza wheel and nom.
