You've heard of Tex Mex before? Well, this is an Italian Style Chicken Tortilla combination which equals, Italian Mex.

Whatever you call this, it's perfect for the lighter eater or anyone who loves salad in a sandwich.

This can be served open-faced or rolled up using a tortilla or filled pita. Great for brunches, lunches, and dinners.

Here is a great recipe filling full of flavor and a little different than what your use to.

These chicken-filled tortillas are sauteed with garlic and peppers, topped with salad and vinaigrette dressing.

These have a great taste bursting with freshness.
