12" flour tortilla

1/4 cup Monterey jack cheese

1/4 cup cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons chopped hatch chilies (we like Zia)

Hot sauce (we like Valentina's)

Sour cream (mix the hot sauce into sour cream to taste depending on how spicy you like)

Grilled chicken thighs (season with salt and pepper and grill until cooked through)


1. Heat a pan or skillet on medium high heat. Drop chicken on heat surface, and then cheese on top of the chicken until it starts to melt.

2. Place tortilla on top of cheese. Once the cheese starts to brown, flip over and fill with the chopped chilies.

3. Add hot sauce and sour cream. Fold in half and chop into four pieces.
