Each Sunday, I thank my readership for their loyalty and dedication to my blog, by providing a healthy recipe.  To those that know, this is a healthy repeat, but for those that are unaware and are new to the blog, this is my way of “giving back.”  It is also a way to “Pay it Forward.”  Each Sunday, you have a healthy recipe to prepare for yourself or for your loved ones.  Today is a feast of tastes from  1,000 Low Fat, Salt, Sugar, & Cholesterol Healthy Recipes.

  • Heat the tortillas in an ungreased nonstick skillet in a stack, alternating the top and bottom tortillas so that they all heat evenly.   Wrap in kitchen foil or a clean dish cloth to keep warm.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet, add the chicken, and heat through.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Combine the refried beans with the cumin and oregano.
  • Spread a tortilla with warm refried beans,, then top with a spoonful of the chicken, 1-2 slices of avocado, a dab of salsa, chipotle to taste, spoon of sour cream, and a sprinkling of onion, lettuce, and radishes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste, then roll up as tightly as you can.  Repeat with the remaining tortillas and serve immediately.
