Well.........They turned out with mixed results. They tasted great, but didn't look very good. Next time I will get the larger tortillas, and will definitely cut back on the cheese by at least 1/2. They sorta....goollooookked al over the place. Good thing I lined the pan with tinfoil. Unfortunately, I lost 1/2 the cheese and it stuck to the foil. I couldn't even reclaim it this morning after the leftovers sat in the fridge for the night.

The use of parchment paper would have been better to use in this instance.

Thanks for the link to this recipe :130: . We made them tonight - tasty but a little 'plain'. We will try again with the rest of the filling but maybe add some chopped tomato and green onion when rolling.

And definitely using parchment paper is a good idea - they did not stick at all.

Ugh - not for me. Don't much care for them and I'd have heartburn for days. I am tempted to find a good re-fried bean recipe to go along with them, haven't had that for years. But I'd be on my own there, husband won't touch those.

Scones, they are still hot and smell great!

Sorry, no funny story to go with this one.

No oven mitts catching fire? No 3 Alarm firetruck racing up?

Alan! I'm so proud of you and they look scrumptious!

My daughter loaned me her sous vide setup and after one try, a five pound pork roast cooked for thirty-six hours and finished with a Puerto Rican recipe, I went out and bought my own. Next try, some nice rib steaks.
Okey dokey doggie daddy.

5 pounds of any food is way too much for a single male. I can't even get through 1 loaf of bread before it gets moldy. I now have a lifetime supply of dried bread crumbs.

Wasn't about to shell out $500+ quite yet for a restaurant quality unit so I got the Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker for the rugrat - top-rated on multiple sites.
