made for supper tonight, quite delicious!! I did do some changes, added some chopped mushrooms and used both green and red sweet pepper. I liked the idea of sauteeing the filling first and did so, but I prefer cooking them in the oven, so I veggie sprayed the tortillas and placed them on a tray, filled them , topped them with the cheese and the top tortilla and popped them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350F, came out beautiful and delicious. thanks soo much for the basic recipe, and the idea to sautee the filling first, loved them and will make them again.
