you have to try these

Mexican crepes:
We had some left over tortilla's after making taco's and decided to figure out how to make a dessert out of them.
They are super yummy, fast and cheap to make.
This is all you need:
1 pack of cream cheese
1/2 cup of powered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 pack of 10" flour tortillas
1 egg (optional)
and what ever you want to use to top dessert when done.
mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla
place mix in a strip in the center of a tortilla
roll like a burrito (roll in the sides of tortilla)
at the flap you can use the egg as follows:
beat egg and brush on the flap of the tortilla like a glue to hold together
You could also use water to do this.
Place rolled tortilla in a pan of heated Crisco on the stove (med. high heat)
Use tongs to place in oil
leave in oil for 1-2 min. until brown then flip.
Once other side is browned you can do several things:
Sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar, powdered sugar etc
top with fresh fruit, melted chocolate or jam
This is so fast and sooooooooo yummy
Let me know if you try this recipe out I'd love to hear what you think.
much love
