I was reading the Wikipedia entry for tortilla. It says,
The wheat flour tortilla was an innovation by exiled Spanish Jews who did not consider corn meal to be kosher, using wheat brought from Europe, while this region was the colony of New Spain. It is made with an unleavened, water based dough, pressed and cooked like corn tortillas.
I checked the sources, but only found one, a brief article in Tex-Arcana (a Houston Chronicle publication), "What's the history of tortillas? Tradition traced to ancient culture". The ancient culture is Judaism:
Jewish families — covertly practicing their faith or simply maintaining their traditions as Catholic conversos — settled in northern Mexico to get as far from the Spanish Inquisition as possible. Since corn was not kosher and they were accustomed to eating flat pita bread, they began to make tortillas out of wheat...
Is this factually accurate?
