First of you need to cook the chicken and shred it. Either under the grill or boilingit is sufficient.

Ok, so shred the chickena and mix it in a large bowl with the cheese, soup, sprinkle of black pepper, and the jalapeno peppers.

Fry up the mushrooms, onion and peppers untill soft and add to the mixture.

Mix well.

Lay out a tortilla and cover half of it with this mixture. Fold the the other half over and squash down untill the mixture gets close to but not over the edge of the tortilla. Squash the edge to seal.

Repeat untill all of the tortillas are used up. Sprinkle each one with the left over cheese.

Bake the filled tortillas in the oven for about about 10 minutes at 200 C.

Cut each folded tortilla in half and serve with guacamole, salsa and sour cream.
