	Try your tortillas with honey and chile powder or sliced chiles.  Add
the honey and chiles or powder, dash on some sharp shredded cheese, roll
tightly and warm in an oven, microwave or non-stick skillet.  After
heating, let them stand for about 5 minutes.  Something happens between
the tortilla and honey that I really like.  Then, of course, everything
is good with Chiles on it.  I have a friend who moved here from Mexico
several years back and his wife does this with tortillas, with
outstanding results.  She also makes the tortillas.  So much to taste,
so little time.
