Someone's review of the recipe:
This is a great recipe! Although I did use a pork roast, since a beef one was the price of an arm, a leg and my first born. I did add about 1 T fresh cilantro to the mixture as well as about 1/2 cup green salsa. I also ran my tortilla through hot oil to soften them up, I didn't have any problems with the tortillas breaking apart. I went ahead and fried them up before I froze them, since I wanted my son to be able to microwave them when he needed a snack. I wasn't sure how well they would microwave, but I was surprized that they did not turn out soggy. I microwaved them on high for 1 minute 30 seconds wrapped in a paper towel. I also warmed another batch up in the oven. Turn out great also, not as crispy as freshly fried, but still pretty crisp. Heated 350 for about 10 minutes. I will never buy the ones from the grocery store again, I have now officially been spoiled. Thanks for the great recipe!!
