When you’re in the mood for Tex-Mex, this is the dinner to make. It takes about an hour and a half from start to finish. A good recipe for working moms.

1 (16 oz.) jar medium salsa with cilantro, divided

3 cups deli-chicken, chopped
10 (7-8 inch) flour tortillas
1 (8 oz.) pkg. shredded Mexican four-cheese blend
Toppings: shredded lettuce, guacamole, chopped fresh cilantro,

1. Drain spinach well, pressing between paper towels. Set aside.
