These were very good. I used large burrito-sized tortillas which may have been a mistake. They were very hard to turn over in the skillet. There is no picture because these ended up looking like a quesadilla scramble, lol. But, they were very simple and very good. Thanks Charlotte for a great quick treat that we will repeat.
