Directions

  7. Divide half of the cheese over the tortillas. Divide the onions over the cheese and top with the remaining cheese.
  8. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the remaining tortillas and press down on them to compress.
  9. For the chipotle cream, stir together the sour cream, chipotle puree, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a good grinding of pepper.
  10. Taste for seasoning and add the minced cilantro.
