    Family loveddddd this. Even my son who doesn't like tomatoes loved the chicken with the tomatoes. This could be one of our favorites! Cooked exactly as written. Did serve with some fresh cilantro for those who wanted but was great without it.

    So quick and easy! A nice alternative to flour tortillas. Like pizza, the ingredients are infinitely interchangeable - beef or ham for the chicken, spinach for the cabbage, sweet or hot peppers for the green chillies, etc.
