Whenever I serve these make-ahead appetizers, they disappear fast. When a friend at the office shared them with me, I knew in one bite I'd be bringing her recipe home for the holidays. —Diane Martin, Brown Deer, Wisconsin

"Really good and easy to make! Accidentally bought 8 inch tortillas and filled with 1/3 cup filling per tortilla and it worked great. Will definitely make again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 26, 2012

"These are very good and easy to make! I only got 6 tortillas though and not 8 following the instructions to spread 1/2 cup on each tortilla. The only thing I changed was I used jalapeno cheddar tortillas instead of plain flour tortillas. This added very good flavor. Will make again."
