The perfect base for quesadillas, nachos, soft tacos, enchiladas and more, Casa Solana tortillas are made with deliciously moist unleavened dough and are available in either corn or flour variations, with heat-pressed or stretched styles (for tender flakiness after frying). After they’ve been grilled, Casa Solana tortillas are packed air-tight and refrigerated, sealing in their authentic flavour and freshness — and every tortilla has passed the rigid requirements of our Quality Assurance team. Quality, freshness, and authentic flavour — Casa Solana tortillas have it all. And that’s a wrap!

In a small skillet, heat the meat up to render the fat. Remove from fat and press to drain away any excess. Sauté mushrooms in a dry pan. Add together the mushrooms, jalapeno, cheese, ground beef, five spice, sesame seeds, soy sauce, Worcestershire, Tabasco sauce and salt and pepper. Set aside. Beat egg with 1 tbsp. of water to make an egg wash. Take wonton wraps and cut into 4’s. Working on a diagonal, place a tbsp. of filling into the centre of the wonton wrap. Brush the edges with egg wash. Seal edges and bring the two points to join in the centre to make a hat shape. Set aside and continue with the remaining of the filling and the wonton wrappers. Set in the freezer for 10 minutes so that wontons hold their shape. Steam or fry for 1-2 minutes or until filling is hot in the centre. Plate and serve with dipping sauce.
