Very tasty, will probably make again. We used mild salsa - I will use a spicier one next time, and chop it fine in the food processor. It made about 12, but we used 8 inch tortillas. Also and it may just be my oven), at 400 degrees, the tortillas were on the buring edge of toasted by the time the cheese had melted. I will try my oven at 325 or 350 next time. Thanks for sharing!
