This was a recipe I learned in college. Makes a sweet, low fat and filling treat. Best of all it's made in the microwave!

This is a really easy snack/dessert and very addicting! I improved it by spreading vanilla frosting on a tortilla then adding the sugar/cinnamon mix. My roommate and I make these in our quesadilla maker with the frosting on one side and a little butter on the other- very good! Read More

Because I don't like the soft microwave texture, I baked mine. i used a pizza cutter and sliced them into 1 inch(width)strips and then sliced them again, so they were about 4 inches long. Placed them on a baking sheet, put spray butter on them and then sprinkled cinnamon sugar on them. Set the oven to 400 degrees and bake them for 6-8 minutes. Yummy! crispy and tasty. low calorie yummy snack. Read More

I used whole wheat tortillas and thought they were good. However they would be great drizzled with honey or chocolate syrup! Read More

I made these as a 12 year-old kid. They're addictive. I still make them some 20 years later. A fun varation is to "fry" the tortilla coated with butter in a pan and THEN sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on your cinnamon tostada. Gracias! Read More

Easy yummy. Remind anyone else of junior high? Good tip: use those raw tortillas from Tortilla Land you get them at Costco. I've also seen some at Walmart. After cooking one side flip it and spread on the butter cinn/sugar. It just melts in as the other side cooks -world of difference! Read More

These are not only great to use up old tortillas but it's a quick snack for the kids. I serve it up with sliced apples and a marshmellow/yogurt dip. My kids flip for it. Read More

In Texas we fry the tortilla use a paper towel to soak up the grease and coat it with the sugar/cinnamon mixture. And we call it a bunuello! Kids seem to like the crunchy version better than the soft. It should work with the raw tortilla dough as well. But you can cook them on a griddle or frying pan(cast iron works best) without any oil. They are not as crisp and they taste great with nothing but butter too. Read More
