Recipe by CL_USA

This is yummy. My wife wanted a snack one late night and because of a lack of ingredients, I had to improvise. Makes a tasty quick snack! Try it with broccoli or grilled chicken strips.

***Update*** We add about a half cup of ground beef to this for a heartier meal and use marinara sauce in place of the tomato sauce and spices. Quick, easy and tasty! ***Original Review*** Super easy to make and very yummy. My boyfriend keeps asking for this over and over. Thanks!

  4. Add mozzarella cheese, then herbs, spices and optional ingredients to one half of tortilla.
  5. Fold tortilla over onto ingredients.
  6. Use a lid from a large pot or skillet to cover (helps to melt cheese faster).

  9. Serve hot.
