  • 1/2 tbsp. butter
  • 2/3 c. grated colby jack cheese
  • 1/4 c. broccoli cut into small florets and steamed
  • 1/4 c. diced grilled chicken or pulled rotisserie chicken
  • pinch salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 soft taco size flour tortilla white or whole wheat


  • In a medium nonstick skillet set over medium-low heat, add the butter. Once melted, add one tortilla. Top with half of the cheese, then spread the broccoli and grilled chicken over top, dispersing evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with remaining cheese, then place the remaining tortilla over top.
  • Cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden outside, and melty on the inside. Remove from the skillet and let cool for 3 minutes. Use a pizza wheel or sharp knife to cut into wedges. Serve immediately.
