One stack is a hearty meal; use a pizza cutter to cut into wedges for smaller appetites. For a more mellow flavor, saute the onions and red bell peppers.

This was very good and pleased the family. I've made it twice so far. I just use a tiny bit of oil, since the tortillas puff up from the high heat of the skillet. Make sure not to leave too long in the oven since they toughen up. Thanks MarieAlice for posting. Roxygirl
