Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups
How do you keep these from drying out?? I love them, but too long on a tray mine dried out.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup
I've made this soup for years,but my version calls for creamed corn and 1 can of "Ranch" style beans. Also use half pkg of Taco seasoning mix. It is sooo good.A family favorite during cold winter months.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia
I make this in the microwave.... Put fish in a glass dish--season with half the sauce---cover with Saran and micro for 4 minutes--remove from micro, remove saran and pour rest of sauce over fish. Recover and micro for 3to4 more minutes until fish flakes easily. All I add is a little Tony Chaceres seasoning. This is a quicker way to do the fish and it's still delicious.
