3 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 sm can green chilis, chopped
pkg of flour tortillas (8-10")
2 cups pkg sharp cheddar, shredded
1-2 cups mild salsa
spices and condiments, to taste
vegetable oil spray

Preheat oven to 425º.
Place frozen chicken breasts on chopping block while you sauté the onion and peppers in small amount of oil.

Slice the frozen chicken into narrow strips, then crosswise until you have small 1 1/2 - 2 inch strips.

Remove onion mixture to a medium bowl and add chilis and 2/3 cup of salsa.

Place frozen chicken strips into a skillet and season with cumin, salt, pepper, garlic or herbs of your choice. Add a splash of oil if necessary.

Stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove contents of skillet to a bowl and set aside (cover and store at this point if making ahead.)

Open a fresh package of tortillas. If not moist, cover and microwave briefly, as directed.

Place a 1/8th portion just below middle of wrap. This is usually about 1/2 cup. Cover with cheese and fold up bottom, then sides, then top. Spray wraps with oil, and lay out on a foil-covered and oil sprayed cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes. Flip and bake 5 minutes more.

Remember, everything is fully cooked. You only need to warm the filling, melt the cheese and toast the tortilla.

Serve accompanied by one of the following:

Spanish rice, black olives, sour cream, more salsa, bean salad, green salad ingredients.
Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray. Lay tortillas out and spray top of wrap.
