Prep Time................... 30-45 minutes
- 1 large chicken breast or 12 oz. roast beef cooked and shredded
- 1/2 cup finely shredded cheese (Costco has a good Mexican blend)
- 1 teaspoon Knorr Tomato w/chicken bouillon. This is a favorite spice blend that is highly favored with Mexican cooking. It is Knorr Caldo de Tomate, or Tomato Bouillon with Chicken Flavor. Powdered form prefered. There is a 35 oz. size at Walmart for around $5 or smaller bottles for around $3. This can be used in enchilada sauce, Mexican rice, chicken tacos etc...

Cook chicken as desired, then shred.
The beef that I used was canned from Costco. 12 oz. Roast Beef (brisket)
- Add to meat: bouillon, cheese, onion and spices.
- Put 6 tortillas on microsafe plate and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at 100% for 1 minute.
- Lightly spray a baking sheet.
- Put 2 T. of meat filling (in a line) on one end of tortilla.
- Lift edge of tortilla up over the filling. Press down and pull back, making a tight 'log.'
- Roll all the way to the other edge and put seam side down on baking sheet.
