Baked corn tortillas are a delicious and healthy way to showcase colorful grilled veggies. Cotija is a crumbly Mexican-style cheese that adds a nice salty note. Look for it at the supermarket with other cheese in the refrigerated section; you can also substitute feta.

Round out the meal with a side of whole pinto or black beans. You can use a Japanese slicer to cut the radishes paper-thin. Pop the tortillas in the oven to bake while the veggies grill, or you can bake the tortillas a day or two ahead and store them in an airtight container.
