Have you ever noticed that wrapping something in a Mission tortilla makes it seem a little special?  At least it seems that way to me.  It makes it fun to eat, because you can pick up your food and eat it with your hands.  Using tortillas is also a good way to make leftovers something new.  I like to take leftover steak (grill an extra one or two when you're grilling), and cook it with some onions, garlic, and peppers, cumin and lime juice.  Then just wrap it in some tortillas with salsa, cheese, sour cream, cilantro, tomatoes, whatever you like or have on hand, and you have fajitas!  A leftover rice casserole tastes great wrapped up in a tortilla with a little salsa and some lettuce, too - with maybe some cheese or sour cream.

I'm pretty sure those 'recipes' won't be good enough for the Mission Menus Challenge, but I'm really going to have to see if I can come up with something good.  From now until August 9, everyone is encouraged to submit their own budget-friendly recipes for a chance to win a $10,000 kitchen makeover as well as a host of weekly prizes.  All recipes must:
  • include Mission Flour Tortillas
  • Be original
  • Feed a family of five for $10 or less 
It's the original part that kills me.  As I've already said, I love cooking with Mission tortillas - because they're versatile, kid-friendly, convenient,Trans fat and cholesterol free, and they just plain taste good.  I'm pretty sure I can feed a family of 5 for $10 or less any day of the week, but coming up with my own original recipe is going to take a bit of thought and inspiration.  Thankfully, there's quite a bit of inspiration available at - and I'm ready to try all of these recipes.  You should have heard me Ooohing and Aaahing over all the pictures and recipes when I first visited the page!  Is that weird?  Don't answer that!

Instead just take your great budget-friendly recipe that uses Mission tortillas, and enter the Mission Menus Challenge.   It'll be fun, and you could be the one who wins the dream kitchen makeover.
