Total Time: 30 minutes

Makes: 4


2 cups (500 mL) shredded rotisserie chicken

1/3 cup (75 mL) barbecue sauce

1/4 cup (60 mL) diced red onion

1/4 cup (60 mL) diced pickled jalapeño peppers

2 cups (500 mL) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided

4 large flour tortillas (10-inch/25 cm)

2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil

In a bowl, toss chicken with barbecue sauce until well coated. Stir in red onion and pickled jalapeños.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup (60 mL) cheese over half of each tortilla; top with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Fold over tortilla to enclose filling.
