Just made them… YUMMY!!!! My husband was traveling and I was a bit hungry. Read the recipe, thought “that’s what I want for dinner”, of course I had everything on hand and not more than 10 minutes later I was eating a delish, cheesy sensation. Now I’m going to crave them all the time :) Thanks.
This recipe was a great way to finally make my 5 year old realize that she does like tacos. She now asks for these all the time.
This was absolutely delicious. I had this for a snack tonight, after tasting, have decided to make more to take for lunch at work tomorrow, and will be having the veggie tacos later in the week with zucchini from my garden for supper. My husband is going to love this. I love your site. Thanks for the post.
This was awesome–and so easy. We used “butter tortillas” that they sell in the bakery of our grocery store, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. We then stuffed them with avocados, tomatoes, and lettuce (and my husband added salsa and onions to his), and a little salt. Mmmmm…
Great job posting this one. This has been a family staple for 5 generations. Use vegetable oil if you are out of butter. Some family members will fry this in the pan the chorizo was made in for heat! Yummy!
I just finished eating two of these for lunch – soooo good! They are a new favourite and I will definitely be making these on a regular basis. I haven’t used corn tortillas much and this was a great way to have them.
Well, I DID have a stack of tortillas in the fridge. This is evil. Evil, I say. I will crave these every single day for the rest of my life now. LOL I had them with cheddar, salsa verde and shredded romaine and they were to die for. I can’t wait to experiment with them more!
This looks really delicious.
I am not a fan of apples mixed with salad and cheese myself, but I love tortillas with butter, cinnamon, sugar and slices of apples.
Using fresh tortillas really take these to a whole other level. In California, Vallarta Supermarket locations sell corn and flour tortillas made on the premises throughout the day. When you buy them they’re still warm and steaming up the bag.
I made up a batch with some Mission brand yellow corn tortillas the other day as a last resort and it just wasn’t the same.
Hey Elise, These look really great. I wish I didn’t love eating so much, I wouldn’t have to work out as much. I made a version recently without frying the tacos and I used salsa and chicken along with bell peppers and onions.
Awesome – I remember seeing this recipe a while back and making it. The kids are hooked.
And now, stumbling upon it again? I’m hungry.
I have a ripe avocado screaming -begging- to be eaten.
I think that this recipe is cool and is great for moms to cook with their kids.
I tried these with my kids– a great hit! Avocados are a nice touch, too. Thanks!
Super fast, super easy, and super delicious! What more could you ask for?
My pre-schoolers won’t eat hot dogs, and they won’t eat cheeseburgers – ask them what they want for dinner, and it is either ‘chickenriceandgreenbeans!’ or ‘TACOS!’. I’ll either go all out with spiced meat and beans, or just throw in some cheese and call it done. As you say, it’s hard to go wrong. (Leftover) rice, black beans, and cheese also make good taco filling. I don’t have a stack of corn tortillas in my fridge – but there are always flour tortillas, and I buy rice in HUGE bags.
These are great!! just downed 3!! They remeind me of this mexican restaurant I used to go to wtih my mom when I was a child… haven’t had any as tastey till now… Thank you!
We eat these almost everyday in our house! I prefer whole wheat tortillas, so they’re really more like quesadillas. I make them on my George Foreman grill (don’t laugh- it works really well and I only use it for quesadillas or grilled cheese sandwiches).
Just today, I made cheddar and apple for my kids. I had mine with black bean dip from Trader Joes and cheddar. Yum! I cook all the ingredients (load up the tortilla, fold them in half). The kids love them and also a great way to sneak in some veggies, such as spinach.
Hola sosa. I guess the idea here was just the cheese tacos and the idea that you could put anything in them, or with them. I LOVE chorizo. I eat it in scrambled eggs. And my mother and I have been arguing for months over the bean recipe. She uses a pressure cooker and doesn’t soak the beans. But when we grew up, she always soaked the beans. Diana Kennedy doesn’t soak her beans. So the bean recipe has been problematic as there are several different opinions. What is your opinion about the best way to cook beans? And how do you like to serve chorizo?
Being mexican, I don’t mind that recipe without beans and chili sauce.
What about some chorizo?
Hi MsOktober – that’s one way to do it! It’s hard to go wrong with tortillas, butter, and cheese.
Hi Arti – Excellent. I’m so glad you and your family liked them. It used to be that you could only get good tortillas, salsa, and avocados in the Southwest. Now that Mexican food has become more popular around the country you can usually find good ingredients everywhere. This is good news. Enjoy!
