      'So yummy' is a perfect description, we loved these. I added some chopped black olives, some chopped green bell pepper and a tomato. Also added a shake of chili flakes. Delicious!

      Perfect! :) I love me some good Mexican food, and this hit the spot! I loved that this was cooked in the oven too... easier & better for you to boot! I didn't use any butter -- just the non-stick spray on the pan and a little on the top tortillas too. Topped with guacamole and a light salsa ranch I had on hand. Thank you so much for sharing!

      This was good, but I will adapt it a bit before I make it again. It was burned at 7 minutes -- it was tasty enough that we ate it anyway, but quite black on top. We found the filling very bland, even though I increased the oregano. Next time, I'll double the cumin and oregano, and add more salsa, too; I'll add some cayenne to my husband's portion and diced jalapenos to all the filling. I'll either reduce the heat, or cook on a griddle on the stove. Overall a great starter recipe, but in need of tweaking!
