    Delish! My husband and I love it! Does anyone know if it freezes well?

    Absolutely fabulous! We loved them so much (even my 3 year old) I'm making them again soon. My husband also took them in to work for people to try (we doubled the recipe) and everyone loved them. Reheat really well too. I served them with extra salsa and it was great.

    This is a fabulous recipe and everyone loved it. This will easily become part of the dinner rotation. My suggestion would be to microwave the tortilla shells for about 10 seconds before adding the filling. It makes them so much easier to fold. The first one I tried to do without warming the shell split and broke.
