  3. Spread salsa onto each fried tortilla; top with Cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 8 minutes.

I skipped the parmesan and I used a homemade salsa. Not a bad snack--I think we would have liked it better had I skipped the frying step. NOTE: I made these on my tabletop griddle and it worked just as good as the oven would have and it didn't heat the whole house.

I really didn't find it necessary to fry the flour tortillas for a quick snack, although I'm not opposed to frying them. 8 minutes in a 400 degree oven and they turn out with golden brown crispy edges. I used a Mexican blend shredded cheese. A great snack or appetizer.
