That brings me to the dish for the day, Arizona cheese crisp! I was literally struck and surprised on seeing such a simple, yet addictive dish that has missed my eyes. After eating it, I really wondered how on earth this escaped my eyes all these years. I was ruing the times I have dumped my store bought tortillas that had become dry, not being suitable to make any of ther other versions.
And I actually read through the internet to be really sure if this was as simple as it seem. Yes and what a treat! It takes just under 10 mins and you have such a delicious snack. Best part was, my kids simply loved it, including Chinnu.
Konda said since this takes all under 10 mins, I should be making it again right way. So this is something you must make it, if you have already.
I used Green and Red Jalapenos on top, the hot spice was right for me, I removed it for the kids.
As per Wiki, an Arizona cheese crisp is an open-faced, flour tortilla covered in shredded cheese, baked until crisp on top. It can have strips of green chilies, and served as bite sized pies.
