Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
8 Flour tortillas (8 or 9 inches across)
2 cups Grated Monterey jack cheese, firmly packed
3/4 cup Chopped natural American pistachios
1/4 cup Snipped fresh or bottled freeze-dried chives
Sprinkle four tortillas evenly with cheese. Sprinkle with the pistachios and chives. Top with remaining tortillas. Heat a thin layer of oil in skillet over medium heat until hot. Fry tortilla stack until golden, press down with metal spatula to "glue" stack together then turn and fry other side until golden. Keep warm and repeat with others. Cut each round into 8 wedges and serve at once while hot.
