These were SO good! I used whole wheat tortillas, turkey bacon & salsa for the pico. I also used reduced fat cheese. The directions made is really easy, so thanks! (usually I struggle with getting burnt tortillas &/or filling getting everywhere!) I shredded the chicken; made it easier. I also used nonstick butter spray; saved some calories! Thank u so much for sharing; this is going to become a new favorite I'm sure!

I made this account back in 2001, when the site was called "Recipezaar". A lot has changed in my life since then. My kids are all grown and I try to eat a low-carb lifestyle now. Some of my older recipes were handed down from my grandmother. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I have. Current recipes that I post will mostly be low carb or keto.
