  • 2 flour tortillas use gluten-free corn tortillas for gluten free version
  • 4 ounces mexican blend shredded cheese or substitute with cheddar, monterey jack, etc
  • 4 green onions sliced, divided
  • 1-2 chicken breasts grilled/cooked and shredded or use 2 cups leftover roasted chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. On half of each tortilla sprinkle one ounce of the cheese. Heat in oven until cheese has melted, and remove.
  2. On side with melted cheese place shredded chicken pieces and 1 sliced green onion per tortilla. Top with one ounce cheese (for each tortilla). Fold over other half of the tortilla.
  3. In pan melt oil over medium heat and cook 1 tortilla at a time, a couple mins per side, until lightly browned.
