Book Info: http://diabeticgourmet.com/book_archive/...


- 1 cup shredded Mexican Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, or brick cheese
- 1 green onion, minced
- 1-3 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies (to taste)
- 4 8-inch flour tortillas
- Chunky salsa, for topping or dip


In a medium bowl, toss together the cheese, green onion, and chilies; set aside.

Spray a medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat.

When hot, add 1 tortilla and sprinkle it with one-fourth of the cheese mixture.

When the cheese begins to melt, about 1 minute, fold the tortilla in half.

Continue cooking until lightly browned and crisp on both sides, about 1 minute. Transfer to a cutting board.

Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.

Cut into 4 wedges with a knife or pizza cutter and serve immediately with the salsa.
