This is so yummy! I loved it! Some of the kids even liked it.


2 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 dried ancho or pasilla chili pepper, stemmed and seeded
Salt to taste
4 - 10 in. flour tortilla
6 oz. thin sliced jack cheese
1 ripe mango, sliced thin
1/4 c. minced red bell pepper
1/4 c. sliced green onions
Mango Salsa (Recipe below)

Cook chicken on lightly oiled grill over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. Let cool and cut into bite size strips. Puree the tomato sauce and dried pepper in blender. Put in small sauce pan and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes.
Add grilled chicken to pan and toss well to coat. Season to taste with salt. Place flour tortilla on flat surface. Top half of each tortilla with equal amounts of cheese, mango, bell pepper, green onion, and chicken. Fold over tortilla.
Cook in large skillet on both sides until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisp, about 5 minutes on each side.
