2 slices smoked chicken or turkey, slivered
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

2 teaspoons pickled jalapeño peppers, finely chopped

Place tortillas, one at a time, on a preheated nonstick skillet.

Evenly distribute 1/4 of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, chicken, onions, cilantro, tomatoes and peppers over top.

Cook over medium heat until cheese melts (tortilla shouldn't brown).

Fold to make half moon and press firmly in place.

Transfer to baking sheet or platter in warm over.

Repeat with remaining tortillas and remaining ingredients.

Cut each into two or three wedges, and serve immediately.
