This original TCT “toasted cheese tortilla “was something I started to eat when I lived in Las Vegas, back in the 70’s.

One of the Mexican restaurants near where I worked served them and a couple of us would go in and get them after work.

You can use any cheese “ if it melts “ and any toppings. I’ve made these in a variety of ways, with different peppers, different salad’s, and I’ve even use a traditional salad dressing “ oil & vinegar, Italian or French “ etc. and it is equally good.

But for me I like the simple squeeze of fresh lemon with this dish.
