These can be made as a side dish, an appetizer, or a light dinner with a salad. To give them a smoky flavor, cook them on an outdoor grill rather than in a grill pan, until the cheese melts and the tortillas are crisp. Recipe from Martha Stewart Living magazine. She uses this as a side dish for Bella Roma Pizza. She also serves Pear and Jicama Salad as a side dish as well.
