EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Use deli roasted chicken if you don't have leftover cooked chicken on hand.

For a super-quick side dish, combine hot cooked rice with salsa or with melted process cheese spread. Top with sliced ripe olives and chopped green onions for a festive look.

If you don't want to heat up the grill, cook the filled tortillas in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes, turning after 2 minutes, until light golden brown.
