REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I made this dish tonight for my family and it was a huge hit! The only changes I made were that I mixed shredded Montery Jack & Mild Cheddar cheeses and I distrubuted it evenly across the flour tortillas (that I had warmed in a teflon pan on each side first) & then put the saute (chicken/pepper/onion/garlic mix atone end and rolled up the tortilla. I added as sides on the plate slices of jalepenos & fresh homegrown tomatoes. It looked wonderful and tasted even better!
