Agreed, chicken, cheese and beans have got to be a winning combination. The tomatoes were Ancho Chilie Tomato Sauce and the beans were black beans which were drained and rinsed. The recipe did specify which size of flour tortillas, so I used the burrito size. I did lightly oil a cast iron griddle and cooked the tortillas on 1 side until lightly browned and then flipped, added the toppings and cooked as recommended. I think this help to keep them from getting soggy. Not having avocado, I garnished with fresh Pico De Gallo. These made a great Friday night dinner.
