  • 1 Mango Ripe, peeled and sliced
  • Cheese Mexican Blend
  • 4-6 Slices Bacon cooked and chopped

  • Mix the cumin and chili powder in a dish.
  • Place the chicken breast in the dish and turn to coat.
  • Place the chicken breast in a baking dish and spray the top of the chicken with canola oil nonstick spray to help keep the spices a little more moist.

  • Remove the chicken from the oven and let rest for 5-8 minutes.
  • Slice thin and set aside.
  • Cook two tortillas. Once you flip them over, quickly sprinkle with the cheese blend, chicken, bacon, mango and more cheese.
