Only made two but they were sure good. Served with a corn pudding. YUM.
These were really good and so easy to make. I like that they are baked in the oven. Ended up nice and crispy. I did think that they were very thick--thicker than a traditional quesadilla--next time I make them I will spread the mixture over maybe 6 tortillas, instead of 4, to thin them out a bit. Yummy, yummy--thanks for sharing.
Really good & yummy, too! Came together really easily. I used 1/2 lb lean ground turkey, but still used 1/2 cup fat free refried beans. I omitted the chilies, using 1/4 cup salsa instead. I used low sodium taco seas & low fat mexican cheese. I found that I had enough meat mix to fill 3 whole wheat tortillas-and used fat free butter spread. I didn't bother with the paprika; forgot all about it actually! Baking time (10 min) & temp were PERFECT-enough to brown & get it crispy but didn't burn. This is a keeper! Thank u for sharing. UPDATE: I have used pizza fillings instead of taco, and it has worked wonderfully! Am planning on trying tuna next time. What a versatile recipe! Thanks again!
