2 cups (500 mL)

chopped cooked chicken

1 cup (250 mL)

chopped baby spinach

1

red pepper, chopped

1/2

small red onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup

sliced green olives (optional)

2 cups

shredded part skim mozzarella or provolone cheese

4

large flour tortillas

 

Sour cream

Instructions

  1. Toss the chicken with the spinach, red pepper, red onion, olives (if using) and 1/2 cup (125 mL) pasta sauce. Sprinkle half the cheese on one side of each tortilla. Divide the chicken mixture evenly over the cheese and top with remaining cheese. Fold over the tortilla to enclose the filling.
