Brush tortilla with butter mixture and flip butter side down.  

Flip to where buttered side is down.  Now ready for sauce and cheese!

Immediately spread on pasta sauce, cheese along the entire surface of tortilla. 

Place your other ingredients (meats/veggies) on one HALF of the tortilla.

Cook until buttered side is golden brown (about 2-3 minutes).
Fold tortilla over and press down lightly to compress ingredients together.

Cook for another minute.
Lift out of skillet/pan and place on a plate or cutting board.

Cut into thirds.

Serve with dipping sauces like garlic butter, additional pasta sauce and/or ranch dressing.
