Preparing the Chicken and Vegetables
1. In a large bowl, toss the chicken, red onion, bell peppers, lemon juice, ground cumin, salt, garlic powder, chili powder, and black pepper together.
2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil.
3. Sear the chicken and vegetables for 2-3 minutes on each side.
4. Add the crushed tomatoes and chopped cilantro, cover with a lid, and simmer for 20-25 minutes (chicken should be fully cooked and tender to fork).
5. Shred the chicken with two forks. Simmer another 5 minutes.
Preparing the Tortillas
1. Heat up a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Press both sides of each tortilla into the chicken pan to coat in sauce.
2. Add tortillas to cook in the hot skillet for 1 minute on each side.
3. Add the cheese all over the tortilla and then a generous scoop of chicken on one side.
4. Fold the remaining cheese side of the tortilla over the chicken. Cook until crispy on both sides. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
1. Enjoy warm!
