Directions

Step 1 

In a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add 2 teaspoons of oil and cook chicken breasts and onions until chicken has lost its pink colour and is browned. Internal temperature of chicken should read 165˚F (74˚C) on an instant read thermometer when finished.

Step 2 

Add peppers, spices, and salsa. Cook for a few minutes until peppers are softened. Adjust seasoning with salt and lime juice.

Step 3 

Reserve chicken and pepper mixture and clean the frying pan. Heat over medium heat with 1 teaspoon oil.

Step 4 

Place 2 tortillas in the pan, folded in half, so that only one half of the tortilla is on the frying pan.

Step 5 

Add ¼ cup of shredded cheese to the bottom half of each tortilla, followed by chicken and pepper mixture. Top with another ¼ cup of cheese.

Step 6 

Once the bottom of tortilla is golden brown, carefully flip over and continue cooking on the other side until golden. Repeat with remaining tortillas

Step 7 

Cut each tortilla into 3 pieces and serve with salsa, guacamole, and a salad or vegetables on the side.
