  • 1/2 cup Red Onion Finely Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro Chopped
  • 2 cup Chicken Breast Seasoned, Cooked & Diced
  • 4` Almond Flour Tortillas
  • 1/4 cup Barbecue Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend


  • 1/2 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Onion Powder


  • Heat a medium pan over medium-high heat. Coat with non-stick cooking spray. Fillet Chicken Breast in half. A thinner piece will cook more quickly. Place pieces into pan and season with Onion Powder and Garlic Powder. After cooked half-way through, flip pieces and season opposite side.
  • Remove pieces and dice on a cutting board. Then place into a medium mixing bowl along with finely chopped Red Onion & Barbecue Sauce. Toss ingredients until Barbecue Sauce has coated all ingredients evenly.
  • Place a tortilla into the bottom of a medium-large pan. Flip after 30 seconds in order to ensure toppings are added to a hot surface. Fill half the tortilla with Chicken, Onion & Barbecue Sauce Mixture. Top with Cheese and finely chopped Cilantro. Immediately fold over tortilla and press lightly to compress ingredients. Flip after about 1 minutes and cook for an additional minute.
