Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes. Knead for 2 minutes and then divide the dough into 16 pieces. Press down each piece to form a 3 inch circle.

Heat a pan on low heat.11. Place the stacked circles in the pan. (You don't want to cook them, you just want to dry themout.) Remove from the heat and cut in half. Separate each piece.

Form a cone with each half. Fill with 2 Tbsp. of filling. Close seam with the flour paste.

NOTE: The filling is a very large recipe. I actually divide it into fourths and freeze.Some people might be reading this recipe and think that I am weird. I would have never thought that using flour tortillas as wrappers would work. Not only does it work, it tastes great. I love the fact that they are always available.
