Friday Featured Recipe

I recently started Weight Watchers so lose the last few pounds from my son who is 15 months old.  :)  We tried these Chicken Tortillizzas from Weight Watchers (slightly modified) and we loved them!  I knew the kids wouldn't eat them with the peppers, so they had something else.  Sorry, I completely forgot to take a picture before we had eaten them all!  This will be a keeper for sure!

Spicy Chicken Tortillizzas
(makes 4 servings)
2 frozen chicken breasts (about 8 oz), roasted and finely chopped
4 flour tortillas (6 in)
2 T. chopped jarred jalapeno peppers
1 t. juice from peppers
4 t. reduced calorie mayo
1 t. lime juice, optional
salt, cumin, garlic powder and chili powder to taste (it doesn't take much, just taste as you go)
1/2 c, shredded Mexican cheese blend

Combine the chicken, peppers, juice, lime juice, mayo and seasonings.  Set aside.  Coat skillet with cooking spray.  Heat tortillas (one at a time) over medium heat until slightly browned on each side.  Don't over cook.  Top each tortillas w/ 1/4 of chicken mixture.  Spread to edges.  Top each w/ shredded cheese.  Return to skillet (one at a time) on low heat.  Cover with lid until cheese is melted and the bottom is crispy (1-1 1/2 min).  Be careful not to burn them!  I served them with baby carrots.

*I suppose that you could do these on an electric skillet if you wanted to cook them all at once.  Just don't worry about covering them.  I haven't tried them that way but assume it would be fine.
