I don't know what to call these things, so I'm calling them crepes.  I suppose you can call them tortillas or flatbread or pancakes if you'd rather.  If you like the taste of nutritional yeast and corn tortillas, you might like to try these...things. 

Kari's Masa-Chickpea-Brown Rice Crepe with Nutritional Yeast

(Makes 6 savory crepes)

1/4 cup chickpea flour

1/4 cup brown rice flour

1/4 cup masa

1/4 cup KAL nutritonal yeast flakes

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp onion powder

1 cup water

Combine dry ingredients. Add water and stir until smooth.

Heat nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Wipe with a bit of oil.

Take 1/4 cup of batter and pour onto hot griddle. Using the back of a spoon,gently spread batter from center out into a thin circle. Cook 1 or 2 minutes until top dries. Flip and cook another 1 or two minutes. Remove from pan and repeat with remaining batter. Use more oil as needed.
