      THANK YOU for posting this recipe that is so simple yet so good! It made for lots of kitchen fun for me, my husband and our boys. We served them with homemade salsa (see Salsa By Chef #578370 on and the flavors mixed really well.

      Our modifications: We scrambled the egg mixture in a skillet until fluffy and done, laid the tortillas out on a griddle set to 325 degrees, placed the cooked egg, pre-shredded cheddar cheese and (browned in a skillet first) pre-cooked ham (diced) onto half the tortilla, folded it over and pressed it down with a spatula (to let it get a little crunchy), then flip and repeat. I like most everything spicy, so I added tiny bits of imported green chilies to mine.

      Very fast! I thought it was very good. I put salsa inside and chopped up salami. I have to say, though, that mine could easily have fed two! Oh well, lunch is made! Thanks for sharing, made for Name that Ingredient tag game, 2013
