    Bergy's Note:

    This is a great way to use leftover chicken and get the family to love vegetables. Cauliflower is a nice extra to add. Vary the vegetables to suit your taste . Zucchini is a nice addition as long as you don't cook it too long. Salsa and sour cream are important additions to give that extra flavor. I used whole wheat tortillas but there are so many to chose from - pick your favorite. Instead of sour cream try whipped Cottage cheese with a pinch of sugar added. I used mixed Cumin Gouda & Cheddar cheeses - use your favorite cheese. The recipe may be doubled. Serve with a green salad
