OMG! Those sound divine. I left my tortilla make in WA - I will have to get a new one. (Or just buy some really beautiful tortillas from the store). Thank you!

What sounds even better is a hint Jack's wife gave me last night - sprinkle the tortilla with parm while it is heating on the griddle or grill. Sounds awfully good to me, especially with the Porchetta. I have porchetta in the freezer.

Oh, that's an idea from a California taco stand place. Can't remember the name of it, but there was one in Auburn. So darn good!
