Because you asked...

We ate,
We laughed,
We sang Happy Birthday (Robert Goulet style),
We laughed some more,
We enjoyed!

1 package corn tortillas
1 large onion chopped (very, very fine)
1 pound grated cheddar cheese

Mix together the first six ingredients.
Heat in saucepan, stirring slowly to keep form sticking.
