  • Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste
  • Eight 8-inch flour tortillas

How to make this recipe

  1. Spread half of the cheese on top of 4 tortillas. Top with the chicken and red onions. Add a final layer of cheese and gently spread the filling evenly around each tortilla. Top with cilantro and the remaining tortillas. Toss the chicken with the Sriracha and soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
