    I made this recipe for a staff appreciation breakfast at my daughter’s high school, and they absolutely loved it! The only caution that I would give you in making this recipe is, BE SURE THAT THE TORTILLAS ARE COMPLETELY WARMED AND FLEXIBLE before you try to fill them and roll them up. I decided to try and roll them before they were completely warm and pliable (in a hurry!) and had a very difficult time trying to roll them and keep the filling inside the tortillas! Do not try to shortcut this part of the recipe or you will be very frustrated. I had many requests for the recipe from the staff.
