FAQs :

1. Can I use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas? Yes, you can use corn tortillas, but the texture and flavor will be different. Flour tortillas tend to be softer and more pliable, while corn tortillas are firmer and have a distinct taste.

2. Can I make the tortillas gluten-free? Absolutely! Use gluten-free flour tortillas available at most grocery stores. Ensure they are small and suitable for creating the taco shape.

3. How do I keep the tortillas crispy? To keep the tortillas crispy, serve the fruit tacos immediately after assembling. Storing them assembled will cause the tortillas to become soggy due to the moisture from the fruit.

4. Can I use other types of fruit? Yes, you can use any fruits you prefer or have on hand. Consider using seasonal fruits for the best flavor and freshness.

5. How can I make this recipe vegan? To make the recipe vegan, use plant-based butter or coconut oil instead of regular butter, and opt for a dairy-free yogurt or whipped coconut cream as a topping.
