DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425F and oil a baking sheet.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add onions and cook until starting to turn translucent, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add garlic, cumin, paprika, and salt. Stir to combine and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, until fragrant.
  • Take from heat and stir in cilantro and chicken. Set aside.
  • IF YOU ARE USING FLOUR TORTILLAS:
  • Lay tortilla on work surface and spread 2 or 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture over bottom third. Top with cheese and roll up.
  • Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Spray or brush tortillas lightly with oil.
  • Bake until crisp and lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately.
  • IF YOU ARE USING CORN TORTILLAS.
  • Bring chicken broth to a simmer in a skillet or pot wide enough to hold tortillas.
  • Dip tortillas one at a time, briefly, just to soften, 1-2 seconds (I find it might take 3-4).
  • Lay tortilla on work surface and spread 2 or 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture over bottom third. Top with cheese and roll up.
  • Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Spray or brush tortillas lightly with oil.
  • Bake until crisp and lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately.
