Easy and very tasty way to use leftover roast chicken! Had whole wheat tortillas which I sprayed with olive oil, rather than using butter, and I put a layer of fresh spinach in first, then the meat, to which I'd added a chopped fresh tomato as I was short on salsa, then topped that with extra sharp cheddar cheese. Cooked on parchment paper lined sheet pan and they crisped up GREAT in the oven! Served with salsa and homemade guacamole. Delish!

Very yummy! Everybody in the family liked them which is a change. Will definitely make them again. The only thing I will do differently is put them in my copper pans to crisp instead of the oven, they get the best crisp that way.

This recipe is amazing just as it is! Blew my husband away. And he is not quick to say something is amazingly delicious unless he really thinks so. Perfect flavor and the baked aspect is what really puts this over the edge into the delicious category. Making it again tonight. Will be using this recipe for years to come. Thank you!
