Leftover Baked Tortillas

WaffleCrumbs aka Lyn


This recipe was adapted from the Oven Baked Taco recipe from the mommyimhungry.blogspot.com website. It was adapted there from Blog Chef. I had some leftovers from City BBQ (chicken & beef brisket) that I needed to use and this was the perfect solution!! I used Ole El Paso taco seasoning that was leftover from a previous box of shells! I love it when I don't have to make a trip to the store when I make something!! (The better half enjoyed it, but the girls didn't care for the green peppers - guess I should have cooked them longer and cut them smaller.)
