Yields: Serves 4-6

Chicken and cheese on one side of the tortilla

  1. If you're using fresh chicken, you will need to cut it into small chunks and brown in a large skillet with 2 tbsp of vegetable oil. If you are using left over chicken, cut into small pieces.
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss the chicken with your hot sauce. I used Frank's Red Hot sauce. Toss until thoroughly coated.
  3. Lightly butter one side of a flour tortilla and place it in a hot skillet. Sprinkle one half of the tortilla with shredded cheese. I used shredded Mexican cheese, but cheddar or mozzarella will work. Add a layer of the buffalo chicken. Sprinkle on a little more cheese. Carefully fold over the other side of the tortilla and press with a spatula.
  4. Cook both sides until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve with a side of ranch dressing and celery sticks. You could also serve with fresh tortilla chips and salsa.
