Best kind of tortillas to use
Use your favorite kind! But I really enjoy a lot of the grain-free options out there these days! I love the Siete brand, but otherwise I like to grab the more homemade corn tortillas.
What if I want to add additional protein
If you wanted to add additional protein (behind the back beans) you could add some tofu or some roasted chicken!
These would be really easy to make ahead of time! Just prep all the ingredients and have them ready to go in the fridge. You can prep them for work or just whip them up for dinner quickly and easily!
