    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    Just got this in Penzey's fall 2008 catalog. I might suggest using a little more ground pork, like 3/4 lb (I used gr. turkey). I didn't have pizza seasoning, so I used Sharon123's 11 Secret Herbs and Spices( Kfc Copycat). I also added red pepper and sauteed the onions and pepper first. I completely forgot the olive oil, vinegar, garlic and oregano! And it still came out good. Even in the oven, the center of the tortillas were soft and messy, so be careful, and use both hands.

      These were very good! My tortillas must have been large because it took more meat than indicated below for each layer, but that may have just been our preference. I used store brand spices.
