Method

First we need to make dough for making tortillas. Leave it for an hour. Now make equal sized balls, smear them with dry flour and roll them out on a rolling board .Heat a griddle. Put the tortillas on it. Moderately roast one side first then Flap it and turn it up so that the other side is must get cooked. Press to where it bubbles to force the air to the other side which will now swell up. Tortillas are now ready. One can use for the ready made tortillas to save time.

Now to make the stuffing for the tortillas we heat oil in a pan at medium flame. Add the chopped green chilies. Fry it for couple of minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and salt. Don’t over fry it. Just do it for 1 minute. Add the cilantro leaves, which is actually is made of mashing ripe avocados with a mortar and pestle and adding lime juice and salt and some times with seasonings.

Take tortilla on a flat surface, and cover half of it with cheddar cheese. Spread the fried stuffing which we have prepared. Fold the tortilla in half. Repeat this step for all of the tortilla. Grease plat withy oil and put the stuffed tortillas and keep in the microwave for 1-2 minutes till the cheese is completely melted. Remove the tortilla from microwave and put in the serving dish. Cut the tortilla in half and then in half again, with a knife or pizza cutter.
