- 2 Tbs shredded cheese (any type)
- 2-3 Tbs meat or veggies of your choice

You can use leftover chicken or steak to make this fast and easy microwaveable meal for a fast lunch at work or home, or omit the meat for a vegetarian option. You can even make this tasty treat as a snack for the kids after school.
- 2 Flour tortillas
- 1/4 C. cooked chicken or steak (optional)
- 1/4 C. shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 Tbs salsa
- 1 Tbs sour cream
Wet the tortillas slightly with a damp paper towel. Place the first tortilla on a paper towel lined place. Top the tortilla with the cheese and meat, and cover with the second tortilla. Cover with another paper towel to hold avoid drying out the tortillas. Microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and salsa. Enjoy.
