Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This easy dish really does prove that simple is often best. My family loves Mexican food and this is a great way to quickly whip-up a hunger-satisfying snack. Sometimes there's just no need to over-complicate things in the kitchen.

I have a real fondness for salsa verde and used Reta Smith's recipe for it in this dish. If you haven't tried it yet, I suggest you give it a go. It really does add a unique, fresh flavor that can't be beat. I also used rotisserie chicken in this recipe to make preparation a breeze.


2 c
shredded chicken (i used leftovers)
1 pkg
flour tortillas
1/2 c
salsa verde
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
2 c
your favorite shredded cheese


1Preheat a large skillet over med heat.
2Brush tortilla with vegetable oil, place oil side down in skillet.
3Sprinkle tortilla with some of the cheese and the chicken, add several dollops of salsa verde, cover with another tortilla and brush top with vegetable oil.
4When bottom tortilla browns and crisps up, carefully flip and brown other side. Repeat until you use all tortillas.
