These are easy to throw together for a quick dinner with salad or if you have the time with refried beans and My Cheater Mexican Rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a frying pan.
  2. In another frying pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil in frying pan. Add onion and cook until soft. Add garlic and taco seasoning and cook for about 30 seconds more.
  3. Add the chicken and heat thoroughly. Then add tomatoes/chiles and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Place 1/6 of the mixture into the middle of each tortilla and then top with cheese.
  5. Roll up bringing in sides first and then rolling front to back. Place in oil, seam side down and hold there for a few moments to keep from unrolling or "seal" with a toothpick.
  6. Cook until nicely browned and tortilla is crisp.
  7. Serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream!
