  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 large flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken breasts with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Grill or cook them in a skillet until fully cooked. Slice into thin strips.
  2. In the same skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add sliced onions and bell peppers. Sauté until softened and slightly caramelized.

  4. On top of the cheese, arrange a portion of the grilled chicken strips and sautéed veggies.
  5. Sprinkle another layer of cheese on the chicken and veggies. Fold the tortilla in half over the filling.
  6. Cook until the tortilla is golden and crispy, and the cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.
