Food blogger Sarah Olson adapted this savory dish from a family recipe of hers. We were flattered to see that she uses TortillaLand® tortillas!
"I have no energy to make homemade tortillas, what’s the next best thing? TortillaLand uncooked tortillas," she says. "You brown them, and they puff up a bit, just like homemade, and they only have 5 ingredients in them! Just Scoop this Slow Cooker Steak Burritos filling on them, and dinner is ready!"

Food blogger Angela Roberts is never afraid to try something new and different on her blog, Spinach Tiger. Her creations always result in amazing cuisine, and this recipe is no exception. She uses the slow cooker to create these amazing carnitas.
"Had I known carnitas was this easy, I would have made this meal years ago," she says. "We only eat one brand of tortillas. TortillaLand® tortillas are raw and have to be pan fried for about a minute. Once you have them, you’ll never go back to the precooked ones. When heating in a cast iron pan, they puff up and get a beautiful char." Click here for the recipe.
