  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups colby jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach chopped and stems removed
  • 12 6 inch corn tortillas
  • vegetable or canola oil for frying


  • Heat ½" oil in a sauce pan on medium heat.
  • In a large bowl mix together the chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, co-jack and spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste.
