Cheese + tortilla + sauce = dinner. Photo by Andrew BydlonAndrew Bydlon

Unless noted, each recipe makes 1 serving and assumes you packed salt, pepper, and oil/butter.


  • 1 fajita-size tortilla
  • 1-3 Tbsp pizza sauce (pack in a small plastic container; less means crisper crust)
  • ¼ cup Italian blend pre-shredded cheese


Spread the sauce over the tortilla and place in a lightly oiled, non-stick skillet over med-low heat. Sprinkle with cheese and cover. Cook until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisped on bottom, about 90 seconds.
