This was a GREAT start! Just added some home-smoked sharp cheddar cheese along with a sauerkraut/mustard/apple topping inside the tortilla and toasted it all..........thanks much for the idea!

Pretty good. I used a taco blend of cheese but it did have four kinds of cheese, just some extra seasoning. I am going to try this again but with chicken instead. Fast, Easy, an little mess.
