Something I've been doing lately when I have leftover, cooked chicken that is similar, now that I think about it: Sauté sliced red bell pepper in olive oil in a large nonstick pan, after a couple minutes add sliced onion. When they are translucent, add cooked chicken, taken off the bone and shredded, to the mixture, just to warm it. Add the seasonings mentioned above (or, just good-quality smoked Spanish paprika), give it a stir to distribute the spices; you can add a couple splashes of water to moisten it, cook it a few minutes longer to reduce the water and concentrate the flavors. You could serve that in warmed tortillas. My family loves this, even when it's leftovers. Easy and delicious.
