Delicious recipe! I made these for my son's teachers' luncheon and they were a hit. They had a little kick to them but weren't too spicy. Very authentic tasting and easy to make.

Very good! I didn't use the green onions or garlic (didn't have them on hand), and I added black beans and corn and used whole wheat tortillas. Excellent!

I've made this recipe for years--ever since it first came out in TOH's cookbook. I serve it with a recipe that combines lime jello and cream cheese.
