Mexican Grilled Pockets

First off, this recipe is not my own. My fiance surprised me and had dinner in the works when I got home. The pictures were taken by him, and he gave me the recipe for the write up.

Secondly, he is on a grilling kick. If there is a way to grill it, he will find it. The tortillas needed to be used, and he ran with it from there.
