Easy Chipotle Chicken Fold Overs -Super Fast Dinner!

I really enjoy easy, healthy food; especially when it fits my Trim Healthy Mama plan and the whole family likes it. This quick, chicken dish was mildly spicy, just add more chipotle peppers to boost the heat if you like. Mix it up, pop it under the broiler to melt the cheese and away we go!
Flour tortillas or Joseph's Pitas (for THM) or a nice bed of lettuce
1/2 cup diced onions
2-4 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons butter
2-5 tablespoons minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/2 chopped bell pepper, red, yellow, or red
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
Chopped tomatoes
Shredded lettuce
Fresh onions
Diced avocado or guacamole
Sour cream
Saute the onions in the butter.
Add the garlic after the onion is cooked; garlic scorches easily.
Then the chipotle pepper
and bell pepper.
After all the veggies are cooked through, then add the chicken.

Mix and continue to cook until all is hot throughout.
Chop the toppings while cooking and set aside.

Top the chicken with cheese and put under the broiler for 5 minutes or so. Keep checking so the cheese doesn't get too crisp.
Fill your tortilla, pita, or pile it on the lettuce.
Open wide! Enjoy.
