Cheryl Wong of Marina, California, takes a near-instant route to achieve the flavors of chili verde. Instead of slowly simmering the chicken in a sauce, she dresses shredded cabbage with purchased green-chili salsa, adds the quickly cooked chicken, then wraps the works in flour tortillas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine cabbage, cilantro, and salsa in a serving dish; set aside.

Step 2

Cut chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips. In a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, stir oil, onion, and garlic for 2 minutes. Increase heat to high, add chicken, and stir often until meat is no longer pink in center, 4 to 6 minutes. Add cumin and oregano; stir for 15 seconds. Spoon into a serving dish.

Step 3

Wrap tortillas in a cloth towel and cook in a microwave oven on full power (100 percent) until hot, about 1 1/2 minutes. At the table, spoon the cabbage and chicken mixtures into the tortillas.

This is another recipe I found in an old Sunset Magazine, and I just tried it a few days ago. It is very good -- easy to make and most delicious! My family really liked it.
