Beat egg, pepper sauce and salt until smooth.
Brush each of 5 tortillas with about 2 teaspoons egg mixture and 1 teaspoon taco sauce.
Sprinkle each of the 5 tortillas with 1/4 cup of the cheese to within 1/2 inch of edge; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons green onions.
Top each with 1 tortilla, pressing edges firmly together to seal.
Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until hot.
Fry 1 tortilla sandwich at a time, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes; drain.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet; keep warm in 200° oven.
Repeat with remaining tortilla sandwiches, adding more oil if necessary.
Cut each tortilla sandwich into 6 wedges.
