  1. Sorry CBettiga, Your instructions are very poorly written. Several items listed as ingredients are not listed in the instructions, like the turkey breast, yellow or white onions, serrano pepper and you refer to scallions in the instructions, which are not listed in the ingredients. Also could not figure out what season-all salt was, so used Lawrey's seasoned salt and left out the additional teaspoon of salt, also left out spice essence, didn't know what it was either. In the end we did have a cream cheese and jalapeno tortilla appetizer today, but I don't think it was much like your recipe.
  2. Really tasty. Dunno what Derf is talking about re the instructions. Be sure the layer of cheese is very thin, or the rolls will be way too rich. Use different flavored tortillas and cheeses for variety. yum.
