    A great way for Tex-Mex fans to start the day, or finish it. These are small and cook quickly. Serve 3 per person. Try spooning some meaty homemade chili on top.

      WONDERFUL!!!! The only substitute I made was black beans for the black olives and I used whole wheat flour. I ate the first 2 plain and then had then next 1 1/2 with cheddar. They were scrumptious. Fantastic recipe :)

      I was looking for a way to use up some sloppy joe meat and this turned out to be a great choice! I lined a dish with a pancake, topped with the meat, cheese, salsa, and jalapenos. I also enjoyed one plain with cheese. Thanks Belkathy, for posting. Roxygirl

      These are nice. We had them for lunch with sour cream and salsa. Just me I think, but I felt something was missing - probably a little more salt. Maybe if we had topped them with cheese they would have been fine. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.
