Carlos makes these when special guests and family visit and they are gone in no time. It's a great appetizer, especially when hot from the pan and dipped in his fresh salsa! (see Salsa by Carlos)

"I used flour tortillas since I had trouble with rolling the corn ones without them breaking and baked them in a 400 degree oven to save a few calories. I sprayed them with cooking spray before baking. Very good! Kids loved them."
