Serves 6

You’ll Need

  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into 1” chunks
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime, approximately 1 to 2 Tbsp
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp cream cheese
  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 large tortilla shells

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Combine the chicken, red pepper, chili powder, olive oil, lime and salt in a medium bowl and toss. Allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Heat a non-stick skillet and sauté the filling for about 8 minutes. Add the cream cheese and stir until melted and well combined.
  • 3
    While the filling is cooking, use a 3-inch round cookie cutter to cut rounds from the tortillas. Each shell should yield 3 mini tortillas.
  • 4
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the tortilla rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Scoop some of the filling onto each shell and top with a little cheddar cheese.
  • 5
    Bake just until the cheese has melted, about 4 minutes. Remove from the oven, fold in half, and secure with a toothpick. Serve warm.
