I grilledl them instead of putting them in the oven. My family loved them.

MY REVIEW

I was really looking forward to making this recipe. I was however a little disappointed. The tortillas came out nice and crispy but the chicken mixture was very dry and not very flavorful. I don't know, I might try it again and use different things. I know someone used chicken broth in the mix which might help the dryness and add some more spice to kick it up a notch.

This was very good and easy. I think next time I will grill them, I like to have the grill marks. However, the oven did make them nice and crispy.
