Instructions
  1. Take the BBQ chicken and shred off 1 cup of the cooked breast meat, or finely chop your own fresh cooked chicken
  2. Open the tin of beans and drain off the excess water
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the tin of beans to the chicken and mix together
  4. Finely slice the spring onion and the tomato
  5. Stir the tomato and spring through the chicken and bean mixture
  6. Using a grater, grate the cheese
  7. Place the frying pan over a medium heat and add the oil or spray oil to prevent the tortilla from sticking to the pan
  8. Place one tortilla into the bottom of the pan
  9. Place a heaped spoonful off the chicken and bean mixture onto the tortilla and spread out to the edges
  10. Add a sprinkle of cheese over the top of the chicken and cook for 2 minutes
  11. Add another tortilla on the top and flip over – you may need to use tongs and a spatula to stop the filling from falling out
  12. Cook on the other side for 4 minutes – check inside to ensure that all the cheese has melted.
  13. Serve with Salsa and Guacamole (see our recipe index for these)
