Why I Love This Recipe

Try our version of this spicy southwestern favorite. Just a few smart substitutions from the traditional original make this a very healthy dish.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 (7-inch) whole wheat tortillas
1/2 cup shredded light mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded light cheddar cheese
2 slices smoked chicken or turkey, slivered
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped and drained
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.
