  • Fold corn tortillas in half and fill them with the tomato and red onion paste.

  • Beat egg whites in a bowl with an electric mixer until foamy. Add egg yolks one by one, mixing thoroughly until blended into the egg whites.

  • Heat 2 to 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip 1 filled tortilla into the egg mixture to coat both sides, letting excess drip back into the bowl. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining oil and filled tortillas.

Yum yum yum yum! A cross between a chili rellenos and a crispy taco. I served these with the green sauce as recommended beans salad with avocado. Make sure everything is ready to roll before you start dipping and frying. They don't take long at all to cook. Tip: warm the tortillas before filling and folding. Read More

I really didn't care for these. I guess I'm just used to Mexican quesadillas which do not include an egg batter dip. Not even my granddaughter liked them. We both took 1 bite and then threw them in the trash. Read More

So easy and so good! I was looking for something to do with queso fresco and almost skipped right over this recipe but the whimsical photo drew me in for a second look. I served with salsa verde and chopped tomatoes. Thank you Maria Pereira I will be making these again. Read More
