This makes a simple and quick weeknight meal, especially if you have leftover cooked chicken. I serve it with rice and some cornbread.

Wonderful! I left out the onion but added some onion powder to the filling. I also added some chopped black olives. Used Jalapeno-Cheddar tortillas and served with salsa, sour cream and guacamole. Thanks for sharing this quick and easy recipe, Lainey! ***Made for PRMR***
