Ingredients

10 oz. canned 98% fat-free chunk white chicken breast in water, drained and flaked

1/2 cup salsa

1/3 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese

1/4 tsp. taco seasoning mix

Eight 6-inch corn tortillas

Optional dips: red enchilada sauce, additional salsa, fat-free sour cream

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, mix chicken with salsa. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Drain any excess liquid from the chilled chicken mixture. Stir in cheese and taco seasoning.

Place tortillas between 2 damp paper towels. Microwave for 1 minute, or until warm and pliable.

One at a time, spread each tortilla with 1/8th of chicken mixture, about 2 tbsp.; tightly roll up into a tube, place on the baking sheet, seam side down, and secure with toothpicks if needed.

Bake until crispy, 14 to 16 minutes. (Don't worry if they crack and "explode" a little!) Eat up!
