Delicious! I was looking for something Mexican tonight and found these and I'm glad I did. We really enjoyed them. Next time I'll probably try another reviewers method of folding the tortillas instead of layering since I'm not very good at flipping them. The combo of flavours was great, thanks for posting.

These were delicious, however next time I will use small flour tortillas. The large ones were very difficult to handle. I will also use more cheese because my top and bottom tortillas did not stick well together.

Made these last night for dinner, and we really enjoyed them. I used poblano pepper in place of the hotties - we're heat wimps here - and it worked fine. Still too hot for my sensitive kid's tongue, but she picked out the chiplote bits. Thanks!
