When it comes time to have a quesadilla or a good old-fashioned taco, the tortilla you ultimately choose will play a critical role. Should you go with corn or flour? Making your decision isn’t quite as complicated as you may think.
For those seeking a healthier option, corn tortillas are the better way to go. They are packed with plenty of fiber, the sugar content is lower, and so is the saturated fat. Plus, if you’re focusing on portion control, flour tortillas are typically smaller in size.
Another way to help you make your decision is to figure out what you want to eat. While everyone has their preferences, breakfast or heartier tacos will arguably be better suited towards flour tortillas, which provide significant edible durability when you’re packing them with lots of ingredients. In other words, your fully loaded taco is less likely to fall apart if you go with flour tortillas. Burritos also work great with flour tortillas.
For tacos made in a Baja style using fish, consider corn tortillas. The corn will help the flavor come through.
