“The whole enchilada on a tortilla. Super easy and sooo delicious. A great sunday brunch, breakfast, lunch or dinner and loaded with toppings of your choice. You might even have a midnite craving for this cheesy and spicy mexican comfort food. My husband loves these and requests them twice weekly. See the list of toppings at bottom of recipe. You can also add shredded chicken or beef to make your meat eaters happy. Prep time is for toppings and shredding cheese.”
