Flour Tortilla Dumplings

Even with the internet at my fingertips I still love to relax with one of my 'hard copy' cookbooks. This mornings recipe is actually from one of my latest purchases. While on vacation to Myrtle Beach in March I bought a small regional book, bound with plastic and printed locally. One of the recipes is what I would deem a 'comfort food' and so quick and easy for a 1 person meal.

Tortilla Dumplings

8 flour tortillas - cut into 1 inch strips
1 c water
1 T olive oil
salt and pepper
1 c shredded monterey jack cheese

Saute tortilla strips in the oil in a hot pan over medium heat until lightly browned. Add the water and the cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. Season with salt and pepper and serve.Print Friendly and PDF
