Corn Tortillas stuffed with Pepper Jack and Cheddar

This is a super quick and easy recipe especially great for kids. Which kid doesn’t like tortillas, right? You can easily omit the pepper jack and just use the cheddar but using both or any combination of cheese that melts while the tortilla is pan fried till crunchy, means added flavor @sarchakra
