Marinade: Mix first 7 ingredients in large shallow baking dish. Add chicken
and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight,
turning chicken occasionally.

Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Preheat oven to 350F. Wrap tortillas
tightly in foil and place in oven. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large
skillet over medium-high heat. Add peppers, onion and garlic and saute
until tender, about 4 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep
warm in oven.

Remove chicken from marinade and grill until brown and almost cooked
through, about 3 minutes per side. Layer 1/4 cup cheese, 1 chili, then
another 1/4 cup cheese onto each breast half. Grill until chicken is cooked
through and cheese melts, about 3 minutes.

Arrange 1 chicken breast on each tortilla. Top each with 1/4 of sauteed
pepper mixture. Wrap tightly. Place tortilla seam side down, in center of
each plate. Garnish burritos with cilantro and serve, passing salsa
NOTES : I heat the tortillas on the grill. I also slice the chicken
breasts before putting in tortillas.
