  • Preheat oven to 350°

  • Stir the shredded chicken and half of the cheese into the remainder of the sauce and gently combine
  • Add about 1/3 cup of the chicken filling to the middle of each tortilla and roll into a cylinder. Repeat, lining up tortillas, seam-side down, tightly in the dish
  • Spread the rest of the reserved sauce over the tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place in the oven. Bake until heated through, about 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake 10 minutes longer, until the cheese is melted and bubbly
  • Sprinkle with remaining cilantro and serve with black beans, avocado, cherry tomatoes and fresh spinach

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
