Step 1

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add chilies. Cover and cook until chilies are soft, adding water by tablespoonfuls if chilies become too dark, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Uncover. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Transfer to medium bowl. Stir in cilantro. Season chili mixture to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in each of 2 heavy large skillets over medium-high heat. Add 1 tortilla to each skillet. Top each with 1/4 of cheese and 1/4 of chili mixture, then 2 tablespoons salsa.
