  6. What tortillas should I use?

What tortillas should I use?

I like to use flour tortillas for this recipe and ones that fit the size pan I am using. 

But whole wheat tortillas as well as a corn tortilla would work if you are looking for healthy or gluten-free options.

What kind of apples should I use?

Honeycrisp! These sweet juicy apples are a fall favorite in my household and we go through them quickly.

But any tart apple will do for this recipe. I love to use granny smith apples ,McIntosh or gala apples when they are available.  

I’ve been enjoying apple slices in salads and my kids have gone crazy this fall making batch after batch of apple crisp.

If you’re a fan of apples, be sure to try my Rustic Apple Tart with a streusel topping or an easy apple pie made with store bought crust.
