Tasty! I love that this recipe is flexible for individual's "hotness" preferences...I like my Mexican food hot! The mayo really made the sauce thicker, which helped. Make sure to put the sauce on the entire tortilla or else it will be crispy where there was no sauce. Overall I thought it was great and I would make it again....thanks for posting!
