1/3 cup white or brown rice, cooked
½ cups chicken nuggets, cooked

Cook or warm up left over rice. Cut the chicken nuggets into bite size pieces. In a small sauté pan, warm the tortillas on one side. Flip over and sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese. Once it begins to melt, move to a plate and top with 1/3 cup rice. Top with chicken nuggets and fold.

*Add the optional toppings after the chicken before folding.
