“Chunks of chicken simmered in a Mexican seasoned tomato sauce, pan fried in flour tortillas with white American cheese. My fiance says it is the closest to the flavor of our local Mexican restaurant. These are awesome and quick!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add tomatoes, broth, salsa, jalapeños, cumin, garlic, and salt to a medium size sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Chop chicken into small bite size pieces and add to boiling sauce. Turn heat immediately down to low- medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through. You can simmer for longer if you want more flavor infused into the meat.
  3. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter (or spray cooking spray) into a pan on medium low heat. Place cheese slice into center of flour tortilla. With a slotted spoon pick up chicken pieces and allow the juice to drain out. Place in center of tortilla and fold close. Cook tortillas about a minute on each side until golden brown and serve. Goes well with a guacamole salad.
