No ratings yet


  • 4 10-inch whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup Mexican style shredded cheese
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast or use Thanksgiving leftover turkey
  • 1/2 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • In a nonstick skillet, heat a tortilla over medium high heat, open faced for just a minute. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese all over the tortilla, allowing the cheese to begin to melt. Now place about 1/2 cup of the chicken over the cheese on just ONE side of the tortilla, adding a quarter of the sliced onion on top of that, followed by 1 tablespoon of the cilantro. Fold the tortilla over and mash the top ever so slightly with your spatula to allow the insides to mush together. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
