Ready In:
8 turnovers




  • Cut each slice of ham into four pieces.
  • Place 1 slice of cheese, 2 squares of ham, and 1 teaspoon of sour cream on 1 of the tortillas. Fold in half, then in half again (should be shaped like a wedge). Repeat with remaining cheese, ham, sour cream, and tortillas.
  • Arrange "turnovers" in a shallow greased baking dish. In a small bowl combine tomato sauce and picante sauce. Pour over tortillas.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

  1. Very good! Half a recipe was made for lunch today. The tortillas were softened in a small amount of oil before filling and folding. They were served with a side salad. Made for Aussie Swap.
  2. i liked ham like this . it gives a smokey flavor to the meal
  3. Easy and delicious...it doesn't get any better than that. I wasn't able to find corn tortillas at the store, so I had to use flour tortillas. This really had a southwestern flavor to it. I topped it off with a little more sour cream. Made for Aug. 2001 Aus/NZ Swap.
  4. This is so good! we loved it! I used mediterranean herb flavoured tortillas, and i used cheddar cheese. I also used some leftover hot taco sauce for the picante sauce. I addeda n extra slice of cheese in each one, and after baking I sprinkled a little shredded cheese on top. These were a hit, and I will be definately making them again! [Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap]
  5. This sure was a surprise. I thought the ingredients would be good together...that's why I made it...but I didn't expect it to be so darn good! This really did make a wonderful quick lunch. I used Canadian bacon instead of the ham and added a touch of chopped cilantro on top because I felt it needed more color and I love the flavor. The only negative thing I can say about this recipe (which I expected) was that the corn tortillas creaked. I agree with Papa Syd that flour tortillas would be great too! Made for PRMR tag game.


  1. Had a great lunch with these!! Used some prosciutto instead of ham and couldn't find picante sauce so used some salsa instead. Made for a quick delish lunch! Thanks loof! :)
