Step 1

Go ahead and heat your oven to 350°F

MIX salsa and cream of chicken soup together in a bowl.

In another bowl, mix chicken, taco seasoning, cheese, veggies if using, sour cream and ¼ cup of your salsa/soup mixture together until consistent.

FILL the center of each tortilla and roll up. Place the rolled up tortillas in your baking dish (I use a 9 x 13) with the exposed edge side down. Pour your salsa/soup mixture on top making sure to spread it over all the tortilla bits so they don’t get crunchy.  Top with more cheese if desired.

BAKE 20 min. or until heated through. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
