I've seen the two tortillas a lot lately, but why two?<br />This sounds great, and I have everything I need for it in the pantry or the freezer. Serendipity!<br />I wish they still had the cute little wooden tops on the Cholula bottles. I miss those.

Hi Beejay! Thank you and if you try the recipe, please let me know how you like it. Usually two tortillas are used to make the taco more sturdy. In case the first tortilla splits from the wet filling, the second tortilla will catch it. You don't have to use two tortillas if you don't want and many times, I'll only use one.<br />I buy the big Cholula bottles (since I go through so much of it) and those bottles still have the cute wooden tops, so keep a look out for them at your local store :)
