Ingredients

    Cajun seasoning, 2 Tbsp
    Sour Cream, reduced fat, 1 cup
    Shredded Chicken Breast, 1 pound
    Canned Jalapeno Peppers, 1 pepper chopped
    Sweet Corn, Fresh, 2 ear, medium (or 1 cup frozen), removed from ear
    Bell Pepper, 1 chopped fresh pepper
    Scallions, raw, 2 large chopped
    Fresh Chives, 1/4 cup chopped
    Cilantro, raw, 1/4 cup chopped
    Homemade Salsa (or fat free store bought) - 2 cups
    Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, 1/8 cup
    La Banderita Flour Tortilla (Fajita-size, 1 tortilla), 10 tortillas
    Lime Juice, 1 lime fresh squeezed

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cooked, shredded chicken, sour cream, corn, jalapeno, and cajun seasoning together in a saucepan, stirring constantly over medium heat. In a separate sauce pan, combine 1/2 cup of the salsa, bell pepper, scallions, and chives and cook until peppers are to your desired softness. Once the salsa combination is ready, mix it into the chicken mixture, stir until well blended and remove from heat. Add the cilantro to the mixture.

Spray a 9 x 13 pan, and gently fold in half each of the tortillas, allowing them to stand upright once they are all placed. Spoon the chicken/salsa mixture into each tortilla in equal amounts. Close each tortilla with a toothpick to hold it in place. Squeeze the lime over the top of the closed tortillas. Spread the remaining salsa over the top, and sprinkle with cheese.

Enjoy!
