  1. I made these for my daughters graduation party along with several other Tapas. They were the only tapas that were not devoured. Served hot or cold they just didn't have much flavor.
  2. Very good. A bland food - but a great recipe for tortilla tapas. I used green peppers instead of red (that's what I had in my garden). My oven took about 20 minutes longer to cook than the recipe called for. I paired these with two dips: Recipe #8233 & Recipe #162721. Very nice tapas. Thank you for the recipe.
