Introduction

Great for leftover chicken, uses 2 cups chopped cooked chicken. These are very easy, but quite messy. Grab a napkin and dig in! Serve with mexican style rice and steamed broccoli. Chocolate pudding makes a nice desert. Great for leftover chicken, uses 2 cups chopped cooked chicken. These are very easy, but quite messy. Grab a napkin and dig in!

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 tsp olive oil
    1 cup onion, sliced
    2 bell peppers (any color), sliced into skinny strips
    1/4 cup salsa
    3/4 cup tomato juice
    2 cups cooked chopped chicken breast
    dash of pepper
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 cup 2% mexican blend cheese (Kroger)

    Flour tortillas - not calculated

Tips

Use homemade tortillas or serve this mixture over rice or over a big salad.


Directions

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onions and peppers. Saute until he vegetables begin to become a little tender and the onions become translucent, or see-through. Add the salsa, tomato juice, chicken, pepper and salt. Stir it all up and let it simmer a little bit. The chicken will absorb the tomatoes, and the whole mixture will take on a juicy filling-like texture. Fill tortillas and top with cheese.
Serves 4.
