So simple and very tasty! I cut the recipe done for two. Instead of canned green chilies, I substitued roasted poblano (diced) and used left over fresh sweet corn! Also added left over diced chicken to mine (DH doesn't do chicken). My process was a little different; I toasted one side of the tortillas on the griddle, flipped over; then added the filling and folded. Served with fresh salsa. YUM! Thanks for sharing!
