These are so easy, tasty and very adaptable to suit different tastes.

This is todays version but you can tweak them to how you like. You can use mince or shredded beef instead.

Vary the filling to include veggies you like such as corn kernals, carrot ribbons, avocado, beans etc.
If you don’t like cheese don’t add it.

You don’t have to bake them if you prefer soft tortillas. I like the crunch of them though when baked.
They are just as yummy hot or cold. When cold they are nice and soft with only a slight crunch. See, very adaptable!

Great to pop into a lunch box. My son has one in his lunch box for tomorrow. He has already gobbled two up tonight much to my surprise.

This recipe is very approximate as it is to taste. I make 7 from this recipe but you can vary the size to get more or less.

Serve with salad. Yummo! I’m impressed with this random creation using up odds and ends in the fridge.
