Ingredients

4 (10-inch) flour tortillas

1 cup grated cheese, sharp Cheddar or Mexican blend

4 tablespoons butter

Sour cream, for garnish

Salsa, for garnish

Guacamole, for garnish

Directions

  1. Lay the tortillas flat on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle some of the cheese on 1 half of each tortilla. Try not to get it too close to the edge. Fold the tortillas in half over the cheese to make a half-moon. Warm a skillet over low heat and add 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the tortilla to the skillet and cook until it is lightly brown, about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, gently lift the edge so you can check. When 1 side is brown, turn the tortilla over and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is all gooey. Use a spatula to transfer to individual plates or a large platter. Repeat with remaining butter and tortillas. Top them with the sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
  2. Cook's Note: Ask your adult helper to help you to put the skillet on the cook top and turn the heat to medium.
