Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 ½ cups leftover shredded chicken
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • 1 cup frozen roasted corn, thawed
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped
  • ½ cup salsa verde, plus extra for serving
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro, divided
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 corn tortillas

Directions:

  1. Preheat broiler. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, red onion, corn and zucchini and sauté for 5 minutes or until everything is warm and the onions start to turn translucent. Stir in salsa, cumin and 2 Tbsp. cilantro. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange corn tortillas in a single layer and lightly coat the tops of the tortillas with nonstick cooking spray. Broil 2-3 minutes, flip and broil another 2-3 minutes or until tortillas are lightly browned.
