  • 1 teaspoon garlic butter
  • ½ onion big, chopped
  • 1 pepper red and small size for me, julienned
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 2 handful chives chopped
  • 1 and ½ cup chicken in small pieces
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 2 cups shredded cheese mozzarella
  • 4 tortillas crepes about 12'' diameters


  • - In a pan, medium heat, melt the butter. Then add the onions. Let it brown.
  • - Add the pepper and the tomato, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  • - Add the chives, the chicken and the salt to taste and mix well.
  • - In another pan, big enough to fit your tortilla crepes, at medium heat, place a crepe, ¼ cup of cheese and half of your chicken preparation from the other pan, sprinkle another ¼ cup of cheese and close with another tortilla.
  • - Let it cook for 3-4 minutes and turn it over for another 3-4 minutes.
  • - Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.
  • - Slice and serve while warm and extra cheesy!
