  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Crumple 6 sheets of foil to make 6 (3-inch) balls; place on baking sheet. Top each with 1 tortilla; spray with cooking spray. Bake 6 to 8 min. or until tortillas are golden brown. (Tortillas will drape over balls as they bake to form cups.)
  • Meanwhile, combine chicken and salsa in microwaveable bowl; cover with waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH 2 min. or until heated through; stir.
  • Fill tortilla cups with chicken mixture; top with remaining ingredients.


Replace the 6 (3-inch) balls of foil with 6 custard cups; invert cups on baking sheet. Spray both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray; place 1 over each cup. Bake and fill as directed.


Substitute shredded cooked turkey, pork or beef for the chicken.

    We really liked this - nice light dinner! Next time I will add med salsa instead of mild and add also some green / red pepper strips but otherwise it was pretty good - a little messy to eat but worth it!
