These cheese-filled tortillas are the Mexican equivalent of toasted sandwiches. Try spreading a thin layer of your favourite salsa on the tortillas before adding the cheese, or add some cooked chicken or prawns before folding the tortillas. Serve them hot or they will become chewy. If you are making them for a crowd, fill and fold the tortillas ahead of time but only cook them to order.
Great for lunch! I replaced chilli with eschallots and added Mexican spice powder. Instead of folding them over I placed 1 tortilla in the frypan, added my fillings then placed a 2nd tortilla on top. Fried and flipped then cut the whole thing in wedges. - 16 Jul 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. As I was serving these to kids, I replaced the chilli with finely chopped eschallots instead. For my own, I added a sprinkle of Mexican spices inside. - 16 Jul 2009
