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.

Everyone loved this when I took it to a New Year's Eve party.

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.

MY REVIEW

I made this Christmas Eve to take to a party on Christmas Day. I used red & green flour tortillas to add color to my platter. It looked beautiful. But more importantly, it was a huge hit! Although the recipe made quite a bit, I should have made a double batch as they went so fast!!! This is definitely a keeper!
