Light sour cream (optional)
Salsa (optional)

Directions:

  1. Combine chicken, red onion, green pepper, red pepper, and cajun seasoning in a bowl.
  2. Spray large skillet with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Lay tortilla in skillet over medium heat.
  4. Layer 1/2 of chicken mixture on tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/2 of cheese.
  5. Top with second tortilla.
  6. Cook 1-3 minutes.
  7. Carefully flip. Cook 1-3 minutes.
  8. Remove from skillet.
  9. Repeat steps 3 to 8.
  10. Cut each tortilla into 8 triangles.
