Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I use this recipe when we are in a hurry and need to fix something fast. Everyone loves it and it saves me some serious time!
I made the cold version of these for a party and substituted (defrosted) frozen spinach for the beef and they were fantastic. I did find the cumin was too much with the spinach, so next time I'd nix it or substitute it. However, it was still so good that we used the leftover mix for a dip with tortilla chips and everyone ate that up too.
Cheesy Tortilla Spirals
When I took it out of the oven, it was still hot after sitting for 10 minutes. Meaning that the inside was goozing out. I didn't enjoy it warm. I put the left overs in the refrigerator. The next day, I tried it again cold and it was great! You just have to wait until it cools completely.
I made these during a Christmas Eve cooking spree (8 hours of cooking). The next day I brought them to my parents house. Thery were gone in twenty minutes! They are so tasty. I am making them again this year (by popular demand) for our 4th of July party. I am really glad i found this recipe.
I was having a jewelry party, and found this recipe. They were such a hit at my party that when a friend of mine had a party she asked me to make them. A co-worker of mine wanted me to make them for a potluck at work, and my mom wanted the recipe for a baby shower she was throwing. Everytime these have been made there haven't been leftovers. This is an excellent dish and very simple to make.
