EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you like things spicy, add more chipotle chiles and/or adobo sauce to the chicken mixture.

You can use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. Since corn tortillas are often 6 inches in diameter rather than 8-inch like the flour tortillas used in this recipe, you might need a few more to use up the filling.
