1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
1 dash Salt (or to taste)

4 large tortilla(s) Wheat flour tortilla


1. To Cook Broccoli:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Add one teaspoon of salt.
  • Add broccoli florets and cook until crisp tender, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove, place a bowl with ice water.
  • Drain and chop the broccoli. 

2. Combine broccoli with cheese, corn and garlic powder. Add salt and pepper to taste.


3. Divide mixture in four, for each tortilla. Add the mixture on one half of the tortilla and fold the other half over the mixture. 

4. Grease a large frying pan using 1 teaspoon of oil. Heat frying pan over medium heat, about 3 minutes.
