“This is from one of my Mexican cook books,these cheese-filled tortillas are the Mexican version of grilled cheese sandwiches.serve them as soon as they are cooked or they will become chewy.try spreading a thin layer of your favorite Mexican salsa on the tortilla before adding the cheese,or add a few pieces of cooked chicken or shrimp before folding the tortilla in half.”
