1 ts ground cumin
3 flour tortillas -- (8-inch)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat until chicken is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain in a colander, and set aside.

Cut into 6 wedges, and top each wedge with 1 tablespoon of picante sauce. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
