In case you haven’t heart, this is the age of food fusion. From cronut recipes to pokecado toast, it seems like combining our fave foods into tasty creations with funky fusion names is the way to strike Instagram-worthy food porn gold. And the latest craze to hit the shelves? Crotillas. Yep, tortillas + croissants. They’re a buttery, flake, pastry-like invention that can be used kind of like a regular tortilla — that is, it can be topped with all manner of delicious ingredients.
Crotillas are available at Walmart, and you can pick them up at a price of $4 for a box of eight. But of course, this begs the question: How the heck do you eat a crotilla? Is it meant to be enjoyed on its own like a breakfast pastry, or used in tacos and other tortilla-based dishes?
The answer is, kind of in between. You’ll probably do best to stick with breakfast-y combos, but sweet and savory flavors can both work. Here are a couple of ideas:
- Make a breakfast taco by topping your crotilla with runny eggs, sausage, and cheese.
- Spread butter on the crotilla and drizzle it with honey.
- Top your crotilla with strawberries and whipped cram.
- Dip your crotilla in a chocolate or cheese fondue sauce.
However you decide to enjoy them, one thing’s for sure: Crotillas are a buttery, flaky treat in the shape of a tortilla, so you really can’t go wrong.
