  • 1 ¼ cup sweet and spicy barbecue sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 medium sweet onion diced
  • ½ medium red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 small poblano pepper seeded and diced

  • ¼ tsp seasoned salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 8 [8] inch flour or corn tortillas
  • 3 cup shredded pepper jack cheese divided


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the chili seasoned tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and ground cumin. Set aside one cup of the sauce for the filling.

  • Divide the barbecue chicken between the tortillas. Sprinkle with 2 cups of the shredded cheese reserving 1 cup for the top.
  • Place seam side down side by side in the baking dish. Drizzle with the remaining tomato-barbecue sauce and sprinkle the top with 1 cup remaining shredded cheese.
