Ingredients: Metric Units

3/4 c. milk
1 c. pumpkin puree
1 3/4 c. shredded monterey jack cheese (divided)
8 tortillas
Turn Leftover Night into a Mexican fiesta! This Mexican inspired meal comes together in about 30 minutes and even includes "sneaky vegetables."

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and stir to coat chicken. Let sizzle 1-2 min.

Sprinkle with taco seasoning mix. (We used Cheesy Taco flavor - use your favorite.) Stir in milk. Stir in pumpkin puree.

Allow to cook 2 min. Add 3/4 c. monterey jack cheese. Stir and allow to cook until melted.

Reduce heat to low. Preheat oven to 300F.

Spray a baking dish with nonstick spray. Heat one tortilla. Warm tortillas will roll nice and neat, while cold ones will crack and break. (My stove has a "warming zone" - I set the tortilla there for just a minute and it softens up nicely.)

Lay warm tortilla on a plate. Spoon 1/4 to 1/2 c. of filling mixture onto the tortilla. Fold sides in and then roll, like a burrito. Place in baking dish.

Repeat until only about 1/4 c. of filling remains.

Drizzle remaining filling over the top of the filled burritos in the pan.
Top with 1 c. shredded monterey jack cheese.

Bake at 300F for 10 min. until cheese is nicely melted...or until everybody's ready to come to table. Serve with rice. Mexican rice if you've got it.
