A tortilla (//, Spanish: [toɾˈtiʎa])) is a type of thin, unleavened flatbread, typically made from corn or wheat. In Spanish, "tortilla" means "small torta", or "small cake". It was first made by the indigenous peoples of Mesoamerica before European contact. The Aztecs and other Nahuatl speakers call tortillas tlaxcalli ([t͡ɬaʃˈkalli]).

Comparison Between Flour and Corn Tortilla
The difference between the corn tortilla and flour tortilla are identical. When the corn tortillas have less calories compared to the flour tortilla, the flour tortilla is more enriched with minerals than the corn tortillas.
