Ingredients

Filling:
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 small can diced jalapeno peppers
1 onion, sliced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups canned chicken stock
1 Deli roasted chicken, about 3 pounds, boned, meat shredded
Leaves from 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
8-10 flour medium tortilla's


To make filling: Heat a 2-count of olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.


Add the onion and cook until softened and caramelized, 5 to 7 minutes.


Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more.


Stir in the cumin and cook 1 minute.


Then sprinkle on the flour and cook, stirring 1 more minute.


Gradually pour in the stock, stirring constantly.


Bring to a simmer, stirring to make sure the flour doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan; the liquid will thicken.


Fold in the chicken, jalapeno's, and cilantro, and season well with salt and pepper.
