Ingredients

  • 1 box (10 oz) frozen cheesy rice & broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican 4-cheese blend (4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup ranch-flavored sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano leaves
  • 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon salt

    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Dip 1 tortilla into egg mixture, letting egg mixture soak into tortilla; place in hot skillet. Cook until bottom of tortilla is browned, spooning 2 tablespoons egg mixture over tortilla (some egg mixture may run off).
