We had unexpected company over the weekend, I used this for our brunch on Sunday...along with some other recipes from this site. Everyone enjoyed it.


Served this on a friday night when we were short on time. Quick to fix with exciting flavore and texture. My kids devoured it!!!!


We love breakfast for dinner and this is definitely a new fave!


This was a wonderful change of pace for dinner. The tortillas add a different texture and a really good flavor. I fried them first in a little oil to soften them (rather than use just cooking spray) and the taste was perfect. It was a great change when you are tired of the same old things every night.


Fixed this recipe for very picky eaters and they loved it!!!!


I made this for breakfast this morning{my husband birthday}He has no request this for his Fathers Day breakfast.


vry light not to heavy for night
