Although of French origin, crepes are used extensively in Mexican cuisine, served with flavourful and colourful fillings of exciting textures. Made with a batter of plain flour, crepes have a slightly chewy texture and neutral flavour that work well with most stuffing mixtures and toppings. When preparing the crepes take care to cook them to just the right level as overcooking might result in a crisp texture that gets hard on cooling.
