For this effortless entree, I sandwiches cooked chicken, tomato, onion and cheese inside tortillas, then warms them on a griddle until the cheese is gooey. I garnish them with sour cream, your favorite salsa and refried beans.—Sacha K. Roach, Warsaw, Ohio

"Used some leftover grilled chicken to make these. Also traded out the tomatoes & onions for guacamole.

These were a big hit."

"Super quick & easy. My family really enjoys these, but I have to leave the onion & tomato off for them. I like to use salsa instead plus a smidge of taco seasoning."
