Merge with Corn tortilla
Most of the material at Corn tortilla is not really specific to corn tortillas but applies equally to wheat tortillas. The article Tortilla also deals with corn tortillas. I think it is better to have one solid article that handles both types. --Lambiam 20:27, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
I disagree, but mostly with the Central American tortillas. Those are quite different in form, and are not necessarily are made with corn. Sometimes in El Salvador, tortillas are made with rice flour or sorghum, for instance. These should be mentioned in the main tortilla article Ll1324 (talk) 23:33, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

We've a contradiction in market value
- (Section) Tortillas today:
It is estimated, by the Tortilla Industry Association (TIA), that in the U.S. alone, the tortilla industry ... has become a $6 billion a year industry.
- (Section) Tortilla facts:
Tortilla Industry Association (TIA) estimates the retail tortilla category is a $2.12 billion market in the U.S.
Mexico-centric; needs to reflect a worldwide view
This article focuses almost exclusively on the Mexican and Central American tortilla, which is not reflective of worldwide use. There's almost nothing about the unrelated omelette-like dish called "tortilla" in most Spanish-speaking countries (Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and South America). If you're knowledgeable about Spanish cooking, please expand to include more information about these "tortillas" too. Kwertii (talk) 02:10, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
- I just noticed that it has:
For Spanish omelette, see Tortilla de patatas. For Mexican and Central American corn tortilla, see Corn tortilla. For Mexican flour tortilla, see Flour tortilla. For South American tortilla, see Sopaipilla.
- Do we really need so many separate articles? Can these be merged in some way? Kwertii (talk) 02:13, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
- Perhaps the generic tortilla page should become a disambig. Opinions?
- Funny, I was thinking kinda the opposite. I mean, I do think it's interesting that tortilla has so many different meanings in Spanish, but since this is English wikipedia, I think the article should focus more on what tortilla means in English, which, as far as I know, is a piece of flat bread for wrapping things in.

- Precisely. I've fixed this long-accumulating train wreck by merging flour tortilla back here and splitting the trivia over the generic Spanish term to tortilla (egg-based dish). Other types of tortilla already have their own articles. The flour tortilla belongs at tortilla as that is the common name used for it across most cultures (ignoring that "tortilla" happens to be a generic word in Spanish).
