    your recipe looks very very similar to mine too! I think the only thing I do different is dip the tortillas in the sauce first and then roll! Messy but oh so good……….
    Loved the picture, and pinned the recipe. 🙂

      Heather, it is messy. But by doing this is keeps the tortillas from cracking and breaking when you fill and roll them. 🙂
