    I feel bad rating this, since I essentially didn't follow the recipe very much. I already had leftover boneless skinless breast, wrapped it in tortillas, and baked. I'm rating because I followed your oven technique, and they were FANTASTIC.
    We used lettuce, cotija and salsa. YUM!

    Very Good
    Pretty good! I used low sodium taco seasoning and no salt added canned chicken so what it was kind of lacking was some "kick" despite using extra seasoning so maybe next time use some spicier salsa or hot taco seasoning. I broiled them for a little bit at the end to get the tortilla's nice and crisp - 3/15/12
