These were SO good! I used whole wheat tortillas, turkey bacon & salsa for the pico. I also used reduced fat cheese. The directions made is really easy, so thanks! (usually I struggle with getting burnt tortillas &/or filling getting everywhere!) I shredded the chicken; made it easier. I also used nonstick butter spray; saved some calories! Thank u so much for sharing; this is going to become a new favorite I'm sure!
