"I also like to do these with fat free / skinless chicken thighs as the flavor is richer for me. ( No sense of smell 97% of the time, lol.) I spray the tortillas with canola oil (PAM) and heat them to about 125 Deg to make them very easy to roll. You can just heat oil in a shallow pan and dip them before heating. Shred the chick by slivering to 1/4" and about 1-1/2"~2" L.

I love a good red Enchilada sauce on top and at the bottom with Jack or sharp Cheddar grated /shredded on top.
I have used steamed to full done turkey legs and pulled out all the slivers and leg bones."
