  • 2 T. lime juice
  • ½ t. ground cumin
  • Salt, black pepper
  • 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ t. chili powder
  • 8 oz. grated pepper Jack cheese, or your favorite
  • 1-2 fresh jalapenos, seeded and minced

Instructions
  1. Preheat grill or broiler.
  2. In bowl, combine beans, green onions, jalapenos, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper.
  3. Rub the chicken breasts with chili powder, salt and pepper. You can do this a day before if you like it to marinade a bit.
  4. Cook chicken over moderate heat for 5-6 minutes. Turn and cook until brown and just done, about another 5-6 minutes (depending on thickness of the breast.)

  6. Heat oven to 350.
  7. Put ¼ of the cheese in a line near one edge of the tortillas. Top cheese with ¼ of salsa and then ¼ of the chicken slices.
  8. Roll the tortilla and wrap each one in foil.
  9. Bake until cheese melts, 12-15 minutes.

Notes
*****Serve with sour cream, extra salsa, jalapenos, diced tomatoes
