You can also add other Mexican themed ingredients like chopped onions or black olives.
Fried, Sugar Tortilla Shells
Cinnamon and sugar, (1 tsp. cinnamon to 1/2 cup sugar)
In a frying pan add about 1/2 inch of oil. When oil is hot, fry tortillas (I either cut or tear them in to halves or quarters).
When golden brown, remove from pan and lay on paper towels. Immediately sprinkle with cinnamon mixture on both sides.
