Veggie Tortilla Appetizers

I had some friends visiting recently and needed to throw a quick appetizer together and this is what I came up with.  They loved them!  These would be good to take to all those Memorial Day picnics.

I think tortillas are so versatile.  Besides making your traditional burritos and fajitas with them, I have made tortilla noodles with them (see my tortilla soup recipe) as well as main meals (such as margherita pizza and black bean quesadillas) and the sky's the limit when it comes to using them to make appetizers. Feel free to add your own ideas in making this appetizer and then share with us the concoctions you come up with.

8 tortillas (fajita size)
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
4 oz. mushrooms, chopped
olive oil
mozarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Place tortillas on ungreased cookie sheets.  Put onion, green pepper, tomatoes and mushrooms evenly on top of tortillas. Sprinkle on the basil and oregano.  Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.  Lastly, sprinkle cheese over all.

Bake 6 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.  Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Servings:  32 appetizers
