Vegetarian Tortilla Stack

“Nearly all the meals I make are meatless," writes Wendy Fenstermacher of Allentown, Pennsylvania. "This is one of my husband’s favorites. If you like, you could vary the amount of jalapeno slices—or leave them out altogether. But I wouldn’t!” —

    This recipe is really easy and so delicious. Since I'm vegan I used veggie slices instead of cheese. Try it, you'll like it!
