Makes: 1 servings

Time: 10-15 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 Flour or Corn Tortillas
  • Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Refried Beans (optional)

Directions

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

3. Set one of the flour tortillas aside. Cut a face out from the middle of one of the tortillas. You can plan your face by scratching out the shapes with a toothpick first before you cut, or press on round or triangle shaped cookie cutter.

5. Add the other flour tortilla on top of the cheese, making sure the stems line up.
