"The second time I made these, I added a thin slice of boiled ham after spreading on the cheese mixture then continued with the recipe. Granted, it no longer vegetarian, but it's good."

"Loved recipe as submitted. Some family members aren't fans of flour totillas though, so used thin sliced ham. Tastey, but not nearly as pretty - I prefer the original idea ~ thanks for the recipe"
