I came across this recipe today while browsing through my old TOH magazines. It's not a bad recipe, it just didn't "wow" me. The kids enjoyed it more than DH & I. I made a half recipe and used the 6" tortillas. I only filled up 6 tortilla as that was enough for us and I still have some filling left over. If you were to make a whole recipe, I would say you could serve 8-10 people - it makes alot. Thx Sherri!
