In a skillet, combine the first six ingredients. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 10 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Brush one side of tortillas with butter. Spoon 1/3 cup chicken mixture over half of unbuttered side of each tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese; fold plain side of tortilla over cheese. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 475° F for 10 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Cut into wedges; serve with sour cream and guacamole.

This recipe is one of my favorites. Really simple to make and tastes delicious. I like to make it with Zippy Beans and Rice and call it a meal.
