National Tortilla Day

Today is National Tortilla Day, and I certainly want to celebrate. A very easy and delicious dessert is to stack tortillas with melted chocolate blended with sour cream. I use flour tortillas but corn would take it up a notch. Might depend on your tastebuds. Maybe use the corn tortillas with the variation (see below)

Tortilla Chocolate Stack

10-12 large fresh flour tortilla
About 2 ounces bag of dark chocolate, broken up
16 ounces sour cream (low fat works, but you're already up there with the sugar and chocolate)
1/4 cup sugar

Melt chocolate with sugar
Take off heat and add sour cream and sugar to the melted chocolate. Blend well.
Spread the first tortilla (on a plate you plan to use) with some of the chocolate mixture.
Start layering the tortillas and chocolate with the chocolate ending up on top.
Refrigerate for several hours before serving.

Mexican Spicy Tortilla Chocolate Stack

Add some cinnamon and ground ancho and chipotle chiles to the chocolate/sourcream mixture.
