Nadine Cherry, This was a nice refreshing snack or meal. I heated the flour tortillas up first, by placing them in a skillet, and turning once, over med. heat.

I saved about a half cup of broth from the poached chicken, added it to (2 cans of) pinto beans that were washed and smashed. Added garlic, S&P, a splash of olive oil and heated it in a microwave. Took ot out, stirred and sprinkled the dish with Parmesan cheese ...wonderful "refried" beans!
