El Charro Cafe Fruit Cheese Crisp

Recipe Ingredients

1 (10-12 inch) flour tortilla

6 ounces total white Mexican, Monterrey jack and Cheddar cheese mix

Crumbled mango-infused cheese (available at stores such as AJ's, Ike's and Trader Joe's)

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Fresh fruit slices such as strawberries, bananas, kiwi

Vanilla yogurt for dipping (optional)


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place tortilla on baking sheet and pierce all over with a fork. Bake until very lightly browned, about one minute on each side. Sprinkle cheese mix on top and return to oven until melted, about one minute or until bubbly. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top. Arrange fruit slices and sprinkle crumbled mango-infused cheese.

Serve immediately, with vanilla yogurt on side if desired.
