Healthy version of a classic! It is so easy to transform this typically unhealthy meal into a mouth-watering, waist-friendly one.


    1 lbs. cooked chicken

    1 med. green bell pepper

    1 med. red bell pepper

    1 sml. onion

    1 tbsp. coconut oil

    1 tbsp. taco seasoning

    4 sprouted whole grain tortilla

    4 tbsp. fresh made salsa

    4 oz. mild cheddar cheese


Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced peppers and onions; cook for 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until browned and tender. Add diced cooked chicken and taco seasoning; stir well. Remove skillet from heat and move chicken mixture to a large bowl.

Wipe the skillet clean, then grease with a little coconut oil. Place one tortilla in the pan and layer 1/4 of the chicken mixture on one half, followed by 1 tablespoon of salsa and 1 ounce of shredded cheese. Fold the tortilla in half (like an omelet) and let cook for approximately 5 minutes, flip, and cook for another 5 minutes. Both sides should be golden brown and crispy. Slice into 2, 3, or 4 pieces.

Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken mixture, salsa, and cheese.
