      I've made these several times. I add a can of sliced olives and a can of diced chilies to the chicken at the same time the onions are added. I didn't find the need to use the butter, which cuts down on fats. Thanks for posting!

      My whole family loved this recipe! We used reduced-fat monterey jack cheese and I mixed the cheese into the chicken, salsa mixture before filling the tortillas.
