    • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

    • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
    • 1/4 cup chopped onion

    1. For each sandwich, sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese in center of tortilla; top cheese with 3 tortilla chips, 1/2 cup rice, 1/3 cup chicken, 2 tablespoons tomato, 1 tablespoon onion and 1 teaspoon cilantro. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
