Cheese-filled tortillas are the perfect match for a quick, easy and hearty soup. This is from the Pillsbury bake-off. It looks good so I wanted to save it here.

I made this for tonight's dinner and really enjoyed it. For the taquito dippers, I cut 2 year old cheddar into thin strips before wrapping in tortillas. Rather than brushing them with vegetable oil, I sprayed them with a light coating of olive oil. Made for PAC Spring 2008
