4 ounces Chicken breast, boneless, skinless

½ teaspoon Cumin

    • Warm a large sauté pan.
    • Warm cast iron skillet, or George Foreman grill.
    • Pan spray chicken breast, and place on grill (or cast iron skillet)
    • While chicken is cooking, chop all vegetables.
    • Season vegetables with cumin and salt.
    • Once chicken is cooked cut into slices or chunks.
    • Place tortilla in warm sauté pan.
    • Put all ingredients (chicken, vegetables, and cheese) on half of the tortilla, and then fold over.
    • Brown both sides of the tortilla, and then remove from pan.
