    Fry tortillas till soft,not crisp.
    Drain on paper towels.Place tortilla flat on microwavable plate and cover with chile sauce.sprinkle on cheese.repeat on next tortilla allowing 2-3 tortilla layers per plate.Heat on medium in microwave for 1-2 minutes or untill cheese melted...

    Just for the record that is a 16 oz. beer for scale purposes. I am roasting some up right now. Alex didn't send me the beer, but am enjoying one while working in peppers. Thanks again Alex...
