Cheese Crisp


Basic Cheese Crisp

  • Flour tortilla
  • 1/2 Monterey jack cheese and 1/2 Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Jalapeno chiles, sliced


  • Any taco filling
  • Avocado, chopped
  • Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Black olives, sliced
  • Chorizo, cooked and drained
  • Scallions, minced
  • Salsa picante
  • Sour cream
  • Tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Place tortilla in the oven and bake just until it starts to become crisp and a little brown, 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes.
  2. Remove the tortilla, sprinkle on the grated cheese, and top with the chiles. Replace the tortilla in the oven and continue to cook it until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
