I found this recipe in an everyday food magazine. Don't remeber which one. The poached chicken (I like Poached Chicken) is a great addition, it provides a moist meat. I have also prepared it with shredded pork.

These reminded me a lot of the "Mexican Pizzas" my mom used to make. The tortillas get nice and crunchy in the oven, and the combination of ingredients is perfect. I keep cooked shredded chicken in my freezer just for recipes like this.

Love these! I made them last night for dinner, with one substitution: I used regular Monterey Jack instead of Pepper Jack. My family doesn't like things real hot, and I figured since the salsa was at medium heat, that would be enough. It was... What caught my eye was the use of flour tortllas. I wasn't sure it would work, but it did. They got firm and crunchy. Definitely a keeper! Thanks.
