Chicken Tortillas With Salsa, Tomatoes, and Sour Cream

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 tortilla with chicken, salsa/sour cream and a variety of garnishes)
Buy a roast chicken at the deli or supermarket so you can assemble these tortillas in no time. If you don't mind turning on the oven, you can warm the tortillas at 250º; otherwise, place on a sunny windowsill for 10 minutes.


  • 1 roast chicken (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup mild salsa
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 6 tortillas, corn or flour, warmed
  • Garnishes:
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 ripe tomato, cut into small cubes
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup pitted black olives, cut in half
  • 1 small green pepper, cored and cut into small cubes
  • Reduced-fat sour cream
  • Salsa

How to Make It

  1. Remove the skin and slice the chicken into thin strips. Mix together the salsa and the sour cream.

  2. Place the garnishes into separate small bowls.

  3. Place several chicken strips in each tortilla and top with the salsa and sour cream mixture. Add garnishes to taste. Roll up tortillas.

  4. How kids can help: Set tortillas in the sun; place chicken on tortillas; put garnishes in bowls; roll up and serve tortillas.
