Very tasty recipe! We tried the "stacks" first but liked them best made between two tortillas as found them crunchier that way. Good eating, and get to cut down on calories, too.

We used less tortillas because it's just the 2 of us, and the recipe is a lot of food. The next time we have guests I'll try the bigger stacks. This recipe was really good, and it was a little something out of the ordinary. It was also really easy, which is a big plus. I'll definetely make this again. Thanks!
