Dr. Tim Says....
There are a few nights a month where I really don't have time to cook. I need something simple to put together and this usually takes the form of a quick Mediterranean sauce. I can use this on almost anything - fish, beef, pork or pan roasted chicken. I have started a few times to write up these recipes but each time I make theme they are a little bit different. There is a pattern to how I create this, however.
I always start by placing a large skillet in the oven and preheating it to about 375°F. This is the pan that I will roast the protein in, making it easy to cook the meat but also allowing for simple clean up. I set the olive oil spray next to the oven because I will need it in a bit.

Look carefully at the tortillas you buy. Even though most are low in sodium some have a fair amount of salt.
This is a great coating and one key is the medium-hot non-stick pan. The tortilla will crisp while the cheese melts slightly. This dish is great with Cumin, Black Eyes and Corn Salad (Low Sodium Version) and topped with your favorite salsa.
This recipe is safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users, is low in sodium and gluten-free. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux and those who are lactose-intolerant should avoid it.
