- Eight ounces of grated, smoked cheddar cheese
- Two cups of frozen chicken strips
- Four tortillas (ten inches)
- At least one and a half tablespoons of olive oil
- A 1/8 teaspoon of pepper
- Pair of minced garlic cloves
- Optional ingredients: chipotle salsa and sour cream
Grab a nonstick saute pan and coat it with nonstick cooking spray while using medium heat. Add the chicken and then cook for about six minutes until it’s heated through and it has browned slightly. Add the oil to the pan and stir the garlic in, cooking for a minute or two. Use pepper for seasoning. Remove the chicken from the pan and put it aside for now.
Turn up the heat on your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a pair of baking sheets with nonstick foil and then place a tortilla on each of the sheets you just prepared. Add a fourth of the cheese to the tortillas and then add a layer of half of the chicken. Spread the remaining cheese evenly between each of the tortillas Cover with the last tortillas and use olive oil to lightly brush them. Bake for seven minutes or until the tortillas turn golden brown and the cheese melts.
