  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup grated monterey jack cheese
  • 2 whole wheat or spelt tortillas


1. Place the chicken breast in a steamer pot over boiling water and steam for 8-10 minutes or until it’s cooked through. Finely chop the chicken.

2. Heat a skillet over medium to low heat. Place one tortilla in the pan and top with 1/2 of the cheese. Add beans and chicken and top with the remaining cheese.

3. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese melts. Top with the remaining tortilla, flip, and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden brown.

4. Cool for several minutes, cut into triangles and serve.

Note: The cheese can remain quite hot even after you cut the tortillas into triangles, so make sure it’s cool before serving to your toddler.
