  1. These were just OK fresh, but did not age well in the freezer. After thawing, the tortillas took on this weird gummy texture that I just couldn’t handle. Addition of shredded chicken might be nice if you had some extra.

    1. We’re sorry that these didn’t turn out well for you. All of our recipes are thoroughly tested, but due to a number of variables in cooking, sometimes others still have a different experience. Great idea to add shredded chicken!
