Ham 'N Cheese Tortillas

Vegetable oil for frying
6 flour tortillas (10 inches), quartered
3 pkg.s (6 oz.s each) boiled ham (24 slices)
4-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup picante sauce or salsa
Garlic salt
Sour cream and minced chives, optional

In an electric skillet, heat 2 inches of oil to 375. Fry tortilla wedges, a few at a time, until lightly browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels. Place wedges in a single layer on baking sheets.

Top each with a folded ham slice, 3 tablespoons cheese and 2 teaspoons picante sauce. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Serve warm. If desired, top with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with chives.
