Weeknight dinners don’t get any easier and quicker than this! We loved this dish especially with our crazy schedule! I used a spicy cilantro salsa to give it a little extra flavor, but really anything you want to add is fine. I added some leftover shredded carrots to add some veggies in for my son and he didn’t even notice. I also used some Hatch tortillas I found at HEB. They didn’t hold up and crumbled when using as a tortilla so it worked perfect in this dish.

Use a mild salsa if you’re making it for kids.
You can stack your tortillas and use a pizza cutter to slice them all in one easy step.IMG_4168 (800x600)
