Recommended Apple Variety:


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 Michigan Honeycrisp apples, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 12 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 package (12 ounces) of fully cooked chicken and apple-smoked sausage

  1. In a medium skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add apples and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until apples are slightly softened but not mushy, stirring occasionally.
