Velveeta-Pimento Cheese: Combine all ingredients.

Assembly: Grill chicken on medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until done (165ºF [74ºC]). Thinly slice into strips.

Spread 1/2 cup (125 mL) Velveeta-Pimento Cheese onto half of each tortilla. Cover evenly with 4 oz. (115 g) chicken. Fold tortilla in half. Cook on well-oiled griddle on high heat 2 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Cut into quarters.

Arrange on plate. Garnish each serving with 1 tsp. (5 mL) scallions.
